Jammu and Kashmir Bhartiya Janata Party General Secretary (Organization) Ashok Koul Thursday condemned ‘innocents killing’ of two teachers in Srinagar, and termed it barbaric.
Koul offered his condolences to bereaved families in this time of grief.
“It is unfortunate that security agencies have failed to thwart such attacks in Valley particularly in Srinagar,” he said.
“It is a clear security lapse from the government end as seven civilians have been killed in Kashmir from the past five days,” Koul said.
Why have the police and other agencies failed to safeguard the lives of common citizens, he questioned.
“He said it seems that there is a clear security lapse and the government should beef up the security in the region to safeguard people. Presently there is a security threat prevailing in Srinagar and which was not there in Valley,” Koul said.
He said the government should admit lapses on its part.
“For the past two years, there was peace prevailing in the Valley and but from the past week, some elements are trying to disturb the communal harmony in the region,” he said. (KNS)
