He condemned the killings of two civilians and wounding many at Frisal area in Kulgam today and said that the Chief Minister of State Mehbooba Mufti claimed that she has ordered the forces in Unified Command meeting to restrain while dealing with civilians in Kashmir.
“Mehbooba Mufti said that in Unified Command meeting she has ordered the forces to restrain at maximum level while dealing with civilians, but today’s incident showed the reality,” Sagar told KNS.
He ridiculed the assurances of Mehbooba Mufti that civilians will be secured in such times. He asked why the forces were not following the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
He said that the scores of other civilians were injured, many of them seriously, is a testimony that the ‘promise of restraint’ that the government uses in its rhetoric is just a prank to befool Kashmiris.
Sagar demanded immediately constitutes an independent and time bound enquiry team to put the facts right into how and why the civilians were was killed. (KNS)
