Jama'at-e-Islami (JeI) Jammu and Kashmir today condemned the killing of a civilian youth Rayees Ahmad Sofi at Fateh Kadal here on Wednesday, terming it 'blatant violation of the right life'.
"The killing of Rayees, besides being a blatant violation of the right to life, is also an extra-judicial murder and all those personnel involved in this gruesome act deserve a deterrent punishment," the Jama'at spokesman advocate Zahid Ali, said in a statement. He prayed for the slain youth and expressed solidarity with the bereaved family.
Meamwhile, Jama'at has demanded the unconditional release of all the detainees and the shifting of all those detainees lodged in various jails outside the Valley to Kashmir.
"Jama'at also impresses upon the local administration to put a stop to the ongoing arrest spree and the misuse of powers under various laws particularly those under the Public Safety Act (PSA)," the spokesman said, adding that "Jama'at pays tributes to all those militants slain in the recent encounters."
