Gool killings unacceptable: Omar
SRINAGAR, July 18: Chief minister Omar Abdullah while extending his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families strongly condemned the Gool incident calling it unacceptable.

An official spokesman said immediately after the incident chief minister spoke with the union home minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde, who ordered a probe into the incident and assured that any use of excessive force or irresponsible action will be dealt with strictly

The state Government has also ordered a magisterial enquiry to determine the exact sequence of events and on the instruction of the chief minister a high level team is camping at the spot which include minister of state for revenue and relief Ajaz Ahmed Khan, minister for state for home Sajad Ahmed Kichloo, DGP, divisional commissioner Jammu and IGP Jammu.

Condemning the incident , Omar Abdullah in a statement said, “It is unfortunate that inspite of costly lessons learnt in 2008 and 2010 some amongst us are determined to repeat past mistakes and use force against unarmed protesters . Such incidents risk throwing the entire peaceful atmosphere in jeopardy.”

“It is highly unacceptable to shoot at unarmed protesters just because they were reportedly protesting manhandling of an Imam of their area,” said Omar adding “There is no justification or rationalization of this deplorable act. This shocking act warrants and demands the severest of condemnation in the strongest possible terms.”

He claimed that justice will be done and those involved in the ghastly incident will be brought to book.

While appealing the people to maintain communal harmony and urging them not to be carried away by emotions the chief minister said that many amongst us wait for such incidents to occur in order to exploit such situations. He said that he understands the anguish and pain as he feels the same and assured that government will ensure speedy justice. Omar prayed to God to give the bereaved families strength to bear with this irreparable loss.
