Banihal, Aug 11: Saying the youth killed in police and CRPF action during recent protests across the Kashmir valley were martyrs, All India Youth Congress (AIYC) has said the excessive use of force has only fuelled alienation and resentment among the emotionally charged people.
Strongly condemning the spate of civilian killings, especially the teenagers, by the police and paramilitary CRPF troopers in the Valley, newly appointed general secretary of AIYC and MLA Banihal Vikar Rasool has said that the state and central government must take appropriate measures to avoid recurrence of such tragic incidents.
Vikar was addressing a welcome function at Tourist Reception Centre Banihal on his arrival here after being elevated as AIYC general secretary.
Blaming the state government for “martyring innocent and unarmed civilians, especially the youth”, Vikar said the security forces and police should observe maximum restrain and not shower bullets on innocent and unarmed civilians.
