New Delhi, Dec 17 (ANI): New and Renewable Energy Minister Farooq Abdullah has condemned the killing of a twenty-year-old girl on Tuesday (December 15) night by suspected militants in the Shopian town of Kashmir.

A militant had shot down Sheeraza Akhter, the 20 year-old girl who belonged to the Kellar area of Shopian in front of her father on Tuesday (December 15).

On the sidelines of a wind and biomass power generation conference in New Delhi on Thursday (December 17), Farooq Abdullah condemned the killing of Sheeraza Akhter and said that it is a shame that people shouting for human rights in Kashmir do not say anything about this killing.

"As far as Shopian rape case is concerned, we have not read the judgement, I can't comment on it. But I do feel sad that those people who are shouting for human rights all over the place are not speaking a word about the 21-year-old girl who was shot by the militants. It's a shameful thing," said Farooq Abdullah.

Shopian is already on the boil as, the CBI's report on the Shopian case had sparked off an agitation in the Kashmir valley on Monday, with the families of the two women who were allegedly raped and murdered in Shopian district of Kashmir, refused to accept the findings of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) report and burnt it outside the Jammu and Kashmir High Court.

In their final report submitted to the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, the CBI had given a clean chit to the accused, denying that the two women had been raped before being killed. (ANI)
