National Conference on Wednesday condemned what it termed as "brutal" killing of a former sarpanch and PDP worker Muhammad Ramzan Sheikh of ImambaraShopian.
Expressing condolences with the bereaved family, party chief spokesperson Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi said, "NC stands in solidarity with the family of the slain Sarpanch in this moment of inconsolable grief. Muhammad Ramzan Sheikh was a common unarmed Kashmiri. His killing brings back the memories of hundreds of brutal murders of political workers in Kashmir over the past three decades." "Killing people on the basis of political ideology is a highly deplorable act and our party condemns it unequivocally. In the past hundreds of our workers have been targeted by known and unknown agencies," he said.
