Arrest of killers of Mirwaiz Farooq’ a landmark achievement: BJP leader Abhijit Jasrotia

 Srinagar, May 16(KNS): BJP senior leader and spokesperson Abhijit Jasrotia Tuesday said that arrest of killers of Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Farooq is a landmark achievement and demanded a comprehensive reinvestigation of similar cases happened in past decades in Kashmir.

“In a significant breakthrough, two terrorists involved in the assassination of Mirwaiz Farooq have been apprehended by the police after nearly thirty years, marking one of the most momentous achievements,” BJP spokesperson Abhijit Jasrotia said.


Expressing hope for Justice to be served to the bereaved family of the slain head preacher, Jasrotia emphasized that the protection extended to these criminals by the previous regimes came to an end in 2019. He asserted that many individuals responsible for the brutal killings in Jammu and Kashmir had been shielded under previous regimes, thus evading punishment and roaming freely. 


Welcoming this recent development, the BJP spokesperson called for a comprehensive reinvestigation of similar cases, urging for strict actions against terrorists and their sympathizers. He stressed the necessity of delivering justice to numerous families affected by such crimes that remain unsolved.

Highlighting the recent arrests of Shabir Shah, Yasin Malik, and Bita Karate, BJP leader Jasrotia commended the government's commitment to bringing justice to the victims. 


He also lamented how these criminals managed to evade accountability during the tenure of former Chief Ministers who held positions of authority within the unified command structure at the time.


“For us, it is always the intentions and intensity that matter,” said Abhijeet Jasrotia, who serves as the Prabari Social Media for J&K Unit BJP. (KNS)
