Hurriyat (G) shocked at youth’s killing at Sopore

Demands Punishment To ‘Killer’ Sarpanch

Srinagar, Jan 17: Blaming Omar Abdullah led government for promoting ‘hooliganism’ under the garb of Panchayati  Raj, the Hurriyat Conference (G) has expressed deep sorrow and shock over the killing of 22 year old youth Nisar Ahmad by a Sarpanch in Zalpora, Sopore, in north Kashmir.
 Demanding severe punishment to the “killer” Panch, the Hurriyat (G) vowed to monitor the proceedings and warned if any attempt to save the assassin on political grounds would have serious consequences.
  Terming the ‘Panchayat Raj as ‘hooliganism’, the Hurriyat spokesman (G),  in a  statement said” “Almost all the Panchs and Sarpanchs behave like the renegades of yesteryears and have resorted to extortion and are collecting taxes from common man.”
 “The Sarpanch, who had accused Nisar Ahmad of theft in his house, killed him before investigating the matter.  The Ikhwani type Sarpanch keeping all norms and rules aside killed an innocent youth. This has proved that Ikhwanirule has once again revived under the garb of so called Panchayat Raj and once again lawlessness and hooliganism is being promoted,” said the
 He alleged that armed forces are using the services of Panchs and Sarpanchs against on-going movement.
 The spokesman has asked the Panchs and Sarpanchs to keep in mind the supreme sacrifices rendered by people and not to play in the hands of New Delhi. “They need to ponder and without any pressure or fear and decide as per their consciences about the way they are being exploited,” he said.
 Expressing grief and sorrow over the incident, Hurriyat has extended condolence to the bereaved family and prayed for the departed soul. It demanded the stern action against the assassin.
