Pertinently, two labourers Monish Kumar and Ram Sagar from Kannauj in Uttar Pradesh got critically injured in this attack, and later both the victims succumbed in the hospital.

He said, “I am shocked that just two days after a Kashmir Pandit Puran Krishan Bhat was killed outside his house at the Chowdhary Gund village in Shopian, terrorists have again carried a brutal attack against innocent people. I fail to understand what the terrorists want to achieve by killing innocent people. This mindless violence must be put to an end.”

He expressed his sympathies with the families of the killed labourers. He said, “I extend my heartfelt condolences to the families of the two men, who had come here just to earn bread and butter for their families back home.”

Manhas expressed solidarity with the kith and kin of the killed labourers. He said, “One can imagine the pain and anguish that the families of these labourers must be feeling at this point in time. No words of sympathy can help to ease their pain at this time. I stand in solidarity with the bereaved.”(KNS)
