Srinagar, Sep 13 (UNI) Expressing concern over the alleged atrocities by security forces in the Kashmir valley, former chief minister Ghulam Mohammad Shah today warned the administration to stop this before it gets too late.

In a statement here today, Mr Shah, president Awami National Conference (ANC), demanded an immediate end to the excesses allegedly committed by the security forces.

He warned that the situation would turn uncontrollable in the event of continuation of the brutalities and atrocities.

Mr Shah said he was deeply pained, hurt and angry at the continuing massacre, torture and the brutalities by the security forces.

Terming it a ''blatant state terrorism'' he said conduct of the state and the Central governments has been criminal and biased.

He also cautioned the administration not to harm Hurriyat Conference leaders, especially, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Omer Farooq and Shabir Ahmad Shah and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Mohammad Yasin Malik.

''If they are harmed, the responsibility shall lie on the administrators,'' he said.

The state administrators should adopt conciliatory measures instead of repression and unwarranted use of force and avoid civilian casualties, he said.

Mr Shah said people's movements are not suppressed by forces as they get stronger with every anti people measure adopted.

''It is imperative that the Kashmir issue be resolved as per the wishes and aspirations of the people of Kashmir,'' he added.
