Bukhari condemns killing of policeman at Batamaloo

“No civilized society can tolerate the acts of belligerence”
Srinagar: Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Sunday strongly condemned the killing of a policeman namely Tauseef Ahmad who was shot dead by unknown gunmen near his residence at SD Colony, Batamaloo.
In a statement issued here, Bukhari termed the incident as a highly reprehensible act while asserting that the radical forces in J&K have only added to the existing woes of the people.
“Since decades this pointless violence has fallen as a curse on the local populace while filling their lives with ceaseless miseries and dejection. Numerous widows and orphans are still yearning for their lost loved ones. Today’s dastardly act at Bemina has added another precious human life to this senseless bloodshed,” he remarked.
Bukhari said these acts of belligerence are only aimed to disrupt the peace in the valley and create an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. “I once again reiterate that violence in any of its manifestations is unacceptable in any civilized society. The perpetrators must be nabbed and brought to justice for this inhumane act at an earliest,” he added.
He further 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 to the family of the slain cop who was the sole bread earner for his family,” Bukhari demanded.
