Srinagar, Aug 25 (UNI) The Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M) today strongly condemned the killing of civilian processionists in firing by security forces in the Kashmir valley.

He strongly condemned the firing on unarmed protestors across Kashmir and urged the administration to exercise utmost restraint.
He expressed his apprehension that unwarranted use of force would only deteriorate the situation further.
Mr Tarigami appealed to the entire political leadership of the state to rise above party politics and help resolve the crisis that has engulfed the entire state.
