Condemning the "brutal firing" by the BSF on protesters yesterday, the CPI(M) accused the Centre of adopting an "utterly insensitive approach to the situation in the valley.

"Further, no steps have been taken towards a political solution to the problems in spite of the reports and recommendations of numerous commissions and committees."

Four people were killed yesterday when security personnel opened fire at a mob that had gathered at a BSF camp in Ramban district protesting against alleged manhandling of an Imam of the area by the force. Curfew was also imposed last night in the district in the Jammu region.
