National Conference on Thursday expressed profound grief and sorrow over the killing of Akeel Ahmad Bhat of Gabarpora Pulwama.
NC chief spokesperson and MLA Budgam, Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi said "It is unfortunate that civilians as young as Akeel have to die and that there was no accountability for such killings," he said.
"It is dismaying that Chief Minister and head of the Unified Command had not spoken a word over the continued spree of civilian killings. Ever since PDP-BJP government assumed office, Kashmir has suffered deaths and maimings of worst order. And Mehbooba Mufti is not just complacent but silent too," he said
