Srinagar,February,12 2017.CNS: On Sunday National Conference (NC) condemned the killing of two civilians in an encounter between militants and army at Frisal Kulgam and demanded an impartial and time-bound probe into the killing.

In a statement issued from party headquarters NCs district President Kulgam and MLA of Homshalibugh Ab Majeed Bhat Larmi lashed out at the forces for resorting to the indiscriminate and brute force resulting in death of two civilians and injuries to scores out of which two have been grievously injured.

While expressing condolences to the family of the slain civilian Larmi said, “no amount of apology from administration can bring the two civilians back. They didn’t deserve to die and therefore it is necessary for the government to identify and punish those who are responsible for the killings.”

The legislator ridiculed the recent assurances of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti that civilians will be secured in such times. He asked why the forces were not following the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).

Larmi further said that government should take action for those who are involved in the civilian killings.
