Srinagar: Former chief minister and National Conference vice president, Omar Abdullah has expressed condolences with the bereaved families of the civilian and the Police ASI killed in two separate militant attacks in Nawakadal and Bijbehara on Wednesday evening.

“Allah marhoom ko magfirat farmaye Ameen. I unreservedly condemn these two attacks & send my condolences to the families of those who lost their lives today,” Omar Tweeted.

Apni Party President Syed Muhammad Altaf Bukhari also condemned the twin attacks.

In a statement issued here, Bukhari termed such attacks as “highly reprehensible while saying that radical forces have only added to the woes of the people in J&K”.

“Violence in any of its manifestations is always unacceptable and will yield nothing except for further death and destruction. The vicious cycle of death has caused much loss to human lives in J&K while devastating the socio-economic conditions of the people during the last over three decades. It is high time for such incidents to be stopped now” he said.

Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Lone in a Tweet prayed for the heavenly abode of the slain.

“My heartfelt condolences to the families of Rouf Ahmed and ASI Ashraf, killed by gunmen today. May Allah grant Jannat,” Sajad tweeted
