BJP condemns killing of labourers in Kashmir

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, June 12 (UNI) BJP president Rajnath Singh today strongly condemned the killing of as many as nine labourers, reportedly from Bihar, in Anantnag this afternoon.

He also directed Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and state BJP chief Radha Mohan Singh to organise help for those injured and transporting the bodies of those killed back to their native villages.

Mr Singh told reporters that the Centre and state governments should share the entire blame for the incident becuase they have failed to handle the insurgency in the state with the seriousness it deserved.

He also asked the state unit to come out with all possible help for the families of the victims.

At least nine Nepali labourers, whom officials had earlier identified from Bihar, were killed and four wounded when unidentified gunmen opened fire at Badroo village in Anantnag this afternoon.

The officials had earlier identified the labourers from Bihar, but one of the wounded, Akshay Kumar, later said that they were from Kadiali village in Murunga district of Nepal.

Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) for South Kashmir Hemant Kumar Lohia told UNI a group of gunmen attacked Bihari labourers working in a brick klin at village Badroo Kulgam, about 70 km from here, at 1630 hrs.
