BJP JK spokesman Altaf Thakur while speaking to media reporters said that “DDC Kulgam and SSP Kulgam are responsible for their killing”.
“We contacted DC and SSP many times and told him that our leaders are facing threats, but they never took it seriously,” he alleged.
“It is totally a security failure which led to the killing of three innocent people for which two officers are responsible.”
