New Delhi, Dec 18 (UNI) National Panthers Party activists led by party president Bhim Singh here today protested against the killing of a youth in Kashmir on December 15 and demanded a judicial inquiry into the incident.
They also wanted to submit a memorandum to President Pratibha Patil but were stopped at the Press Club of India where they were staging a sit-in now.
A youth Ghulam Mohammed Lone was killed while demanding a college in Magham in Kashmir on Saturday.
In the memorandum, the party activists condemned the ''brutal action'' of the Jammu and Kashmir police on the innocent which also showed ''the arrogance of power on part of the ruling Congress-PDP coalition in Jammu and Kashmir''.
''Whenever there was a popular demand for providing educational infrastructure or opening of separate university, the Congress rulers used police to kill and brutalise the students,'' the memorandum said.
In this context, the activists also pointed out that in August this year, scores of Talwara migrants were brutally assaulted by the police near Katra along with several party leaders while they were asking for the implementation of the Supreme Court order to provide them relief.
In the memorandum, the party demanded the dismissal of the state government, dissolution of the Assembly and free and fair elections under the Governor's Rule.
