Inexcusable act: Omar

URI: Angry protesters on Tuesday confronted J&K CM Omar Abdullah as he visited the family of a youth killed in Central Industrial Security Force’s firing on people protesting power shortage at Boniyar in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district a day earlier.

Five CISF men, including a sub-inspector, have been arrested on murder charges for killing Altaf Ahmad Sood, a class XII student, in the firing outside an NHPC power station in Boniyar. Two others, including a 70-year-old man, were injured in the incident.

The CM came out of his car to address the protesters, who blocked the way of his motorcade. He pacified them by acknowledging that excessive force had caused the death of Sood, who was shot twice in his chest.

“This is inexcusable act where CISF men fired on the crowd and targeted a student, who, according to his parents, was coming from his tuitions. The state government has announced a judicial probe and registered a murder case,” Omar said.

Omar told the protesters that he was visiting the remote village to console the family and assure them that Sood’s killers would not be allowed to go scot-free. “I have come to express my deep sorrow to the bereaved family and share their gloom and grief,” he said.

Later, the CM met the youth’s parents and assured them that he would take “the case to which ever court necessary” to get them justice. The CM promised the residents that the power supply would improve within two days.

Separately, Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA), a representative body of various traders and industrialists, called for a complete shutdown to protest power shortage on Friday.
