Former Minister and senior National Conference leader, Javaid Ahmad Dar on Saturday asked the government to identify the Army unit "responsible" for the killing of youth in Nadihal yesterday and announce a time-bound judicial probe to punish the guilty.

"In Nadihal area, a youth was killed some time back and another youth was killed last Friday by the unprovoked firing by the sleuths of an Army convoy which was passing through the area," Dar told KNS.

He said since the Army unit "responsible" for the killing of the youth was not based anywhere in Rafiabad area, it was the responsibility of the government to identify the unit.

"…and conduct time-bound judicial probe to identify the guilty and punish them so that such ill-fated incidents don't re-occur in the area."

Waseem Ahmad Lone, 22, according to locals and witnesses was killed in unprovoked firing by the government forces while he was busy working in his fields.
