Altaf Bukhari condemns killing of policeman in Srinagar

‘Such incidents are inhumane that yield only death and destruction’

SRINAGAR, June 18: Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Friday condemned the killing of a policeman near his residence in Saidapora-Eidgah.

In a statement issued here, Bukhari termed the dastardly attack as shocking and heart wrenching. “Radical forces have only added to the woes of the people and such acts are highly culpable.

Violence in any of its manifestations is always unacceptable and will yield nothing except for further death and destruction,” Bukhari added.

He said that the vicious cycle of death has caused much loss to human lives in J&K and created a stressful environment for the whole population living here.

“The forces inimical to peace have wreaked havoc to the socio-economic conditions of the people during the last over three decades and it is high time for such incidents to be stopped now,” he observed.

Bukhari extended his profound condolences to the bereaved family to bear this irretrievable loss and prayed for eternal peace to the departed soul. “The government should also disburse adequate ex-gratia relief to the family of the slain cop who was the sole bread earner for his family,” he demanded.
