Srinagar: Peoples Conference Chairman, Sajad Lone on Saturday hit out at the gunmen for killing two cops as many civilians in north Kashmir’s Sopore town.
Lone while taking to his Twitter handle said, “Five succumb in Sopore attack. 3 civilians and 2 police men. Mr gunmen— Approximately—5 Kashmiri funerals. 5 widows. 10 grieving old parents. A dozen or more orphans. All Kashmiris. So mr gunmen. Really want to know. Whose bloody side r u on.”
In another tweet, he termed the gun culture as ‘madness’, “When will this madness end. Gun came to Kashmir in 1989. 32 years down the line. I can unambiguously state. That gun enslaves the very people that it purports to fight for. The gunmen really need to ponder whose war they r fighting.”
Earlier today two cops as many as civilians were killed and at least three policemen, one of them assistant sub inspector, were injured after militants carried a major attack on government forces’ party in Sopore town of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district, officials said.
