SRINAGAR: People’s Democratic Party president and former J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday reiterated her stand on opening up dialogue with Pakistan to end bloodshed in Kashmir.
Mufti visited Logripora to express sympathies with the bereaved family of constable Suhail Ahmad who was killed by terrorists in Baghat area in Barzulla of Srinagar on Friday.
While talking to mediapersons on the sidelines of the condolence meet, Mehbooba said there is need to start dialogue with Pakistan and that the Centre must consider the suffering of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, who witness violence every day. “Every day, our youth — whether policemen or others — is becoming victims of violence. Graveyards of Kashmir are full now,” she said.
While talking about Suhail, she said that his father was also killed when he was just four. “What will the family do now?” she asked.
Meanwhile, IGP (Kashmir Zone) Vijay Kumar chaired a security review meeting in view of the recent militant attacks in Srinagar city.
Kumar asked officers to strengthen the general security grid and to ensure better synergy and co-ordination among themselves and other sister agencies working at the ground level, so that terrorists and anti-national elements do not get any chance to disturb the present peaceful atmosphere prevailing in the Srinagar city.
