SRINAGAR: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) has condemned the killing of three youth from old town Baramulla in north Kashmir on Monday evening.
In a statement, the JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said, “Any killing on grounds of political or party affiliations is inhuman and un-Islamic, and unacceptable to people and leadership of Kashmir.”
The leadership said time and again people are killed in such a manner and no one knows who kills them as the killers remain unidentified gunmen.
“While the state authorities conveniently blame armed youth, the militant organisations in fact condemn the killings and many time blame state agencies. In the process, the culprits never get identified,” JRL said. “It is a matter of serious concern and needs to be investigated.”
The leadership appealed to UN to take note and set up an impartial inquiry into these killings.
