LG and political parties condemn killing of teachers in Srinagar
“At around 11:15 am, terrorists shot dead two teachers in Sangam Eidgah, Srinagar district,” a police official said. He said one of the two people killed is a woman.
The deceased have been identified as Supinder Kour, a resident of the city’s Alochi Bagh neighborhood here, and Deepak Chand, a resident of Jammu. They worked as teachers at the Government Boys School in Sangam.
The latest murder brought the number of civilians shot dead in the valley to seven, including six in the city, in the past five days.
“I strongly condemn the barbaric murder of two of our teachers, Supinder Kour and Deepak Chand by terrorists. A dignified response will be given to those responsible for the heinous terrorist attacks against innocent people. Terrorists and their bosses will fail to disrupt the peace, progress and prosperity of J&K UT. My deepest condolences to bereaved family, friends and colleagues, ”LG said on Twitter.
Shocking news arrives again from Srinagar. Another round of targeted assassinations, this time of two teachers at a government school in the city’s Idgah neighborhood. Words of condemnation are not enough for this inhuman act of terror, but I pray that the souls of the deceased rest in peace, National Conference Vice President (NC) Omar Abdullah said on Twitter.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti said the Centre’s claims to build a “Naya Kashmir” had in fact turned it into hell.
Disturbing to see the situation deteriorate in Kashmir where a tiny minority is the last target. The Indian government’s claims to build a Kashmir Naya actually turned it into hell. Her only interest is to use Kashmir as a cash cow for her electoral interests, she wrote on Twitter.
