Srinagar: Mehbooba Mufti has raised questions over the killing of Lashkar Hybrid terrorist and expressed her worry for Kashmiri’s safety, saying that if a terrorist is killed in police custody, how can anyone else feel safe? She also demanded an investigation of the hybrid terrorist’s killing. Condemning recent events of killings in the valley, Mufti said, “The security situation in Kashmir region has deteriorated and the rise in civilian killings is a big concern. I condemn the killings of Kashmiri Pandit and civil labourers.”
“I want an investigation done in the killing of the Hybrid Terrorist too. It needs to be thoroughly investigated. We cannot have a catch and kill policy here as was prevalent in Punjab at one point of time,” Mufti said.
