Apni Party expresses solidarity with bereaved families

Srinagar, Oct 05 (KNS):  Expressing deep shock and grief over three civilian killings that took place in a few hours in Kashmir, Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari termed the incidents as extremely barbaric, reflecting the inhuman nature of perpetrators behind these attacks.

In a statement issued to KNS, Bukhari condemned the killings of M.L Bindroo, a well-known pharmacist store owner in Lal Chowk, a non-local street vendor Virender Paswan from Bihar and another civilian identified as Mohammad Shafi from Shahgund Hajin area of Bandipora districts who were shot dead in cold blood.

Terming these killings as highly reprehensible, Bukhari said that another Kashmiri who was known for running a medical shop for years has become the latest victim of this vicious bloodshed.

“There are no words to condemn these killings. Our heads hang in shame. Mr. Bindroo never left his homeland even in the worst of turmoil and had continued to make the life saving drugs available to humanity in this part of the world. Is this how he has been repaid for his public services?” Bukhari asked.

Similarly, Bukhari said that killing of non-local labour in Lal Bazar and another civilian from Hajin is highly disgraceful as no words can ever compensate for the pain felt by their families.

“What logic can be given to the children who lost their breadwinner father in this senseless bloodshed? No words can deliver solace to them and nothing can bring back their loved ones,” he remarked.

He said that the Sumo President who has been killed in cold blood at Shahgund Hajin reflects the barbarism and inhuman mindset of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes.

Bukhari urged the administration to ramp up the investigations and nab the culprits who seem to be adamant on disturbing the peaceful environment in Jammu and Kashmir.

He also demanded that security of the vulnerable persons need to be reviewed and efforts must be made to avoid such ominous incidents in the future.

The Party leadership also prayed for the eternal peace to the departed souls and expressed their profound solidarity with the bereaved families in this time of utter grief. (KNS)
