Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, on Saturday strongly condemned the killing of mentally-challenged person Raies Ahmad Wani by army soldiers in Shopian.
“It is a cold-blooded murder,” said Geelani in a statement.
“Forces, laced with unbridled powers and impunity under the cover of black laws are trigger-happy and kill Kashmiris whenever and wherever they wish to, as has been witnessed in the last seven decades,” he said.
The ailing leader who has been under house detention at his residence-cum-office pressed for “stringent action against killers” and demanded probe into the killing by an international body. “Indian forces personnel enjoying unbridled powers under draconian laws were feeling no shame to spill the blood of innocent people in the occupied territory,” he said.
