People fed up with stirs, want normal life: GOC
Srinagar: The Army Goodwill School at Behibagh in Kulgam was formally renamed as ‘Shaheed Lt.Ummer Fayaz Goodwill School’ after the young army officer who was abducted and killed by militants earlier this year.
Speaking on the occasion, General Officer Commanding of Army’s Chinar Corps Lt General J S Sandhu said that persons involved in killing of the Fayaz have been identified and forces were on their trail.
Lt. Ummer Fayaz, a young army officer, was killed by militants who abducted him from his relatives’ home in Shopian district on May 10.
Talking to reporters after the renaming function, Lt. Gen Sandhu said that people in Kashmir were fed up with agitations and want to live normal lives “which is evident from the decreasing number of people participating in protests”.
“The number of protests and people participating in these is reducing. People are fed up with agitations and want their lives to go on normally,” Sandhu said. He said the Army was confident of tackling militancy and bring the situation under control.
“We have been fighting terrorism for 27 years… we are confident of making major dent and bring things under control to great extent,” he added.
