SRINAGAR: MLA Shopian Advocate Mohd Yousuf Bhat has strongly condemned the civilian killings in Kulgam as “cold blooded murder”. He demanded an impartial probe at the highest level so that the culprits of these brutal killings are brought to book.
Terming the killings “a condemnable act”, Bhat said, “It is painful to see young boys falling to bullets day in and day out. It is really unfortunate and condemnable how civilians are being targeted with no sense of remorse, which has become a routine now.”
He opined that the human life in Kashmir has been devalued by some vested interests who seem to have got a licence to kill innocent civilians and draw sadistic pleasure out of it.
MLA Shopian urged the government to ensure that no civilian is killed as loss of precious lives has vitiated the atmosphere in the valley.
This vitiated atmosphere, he said, has to be contained in the larger interest of the safety of the people and prevalence of peace.
