Srinagar, Sep 15 (UNI) Demanding immediate end to all alleged Human Right (HR) violations in the Kashmir valley, the Jammu and Kashmir Awami National Conference (ANC) today said anti people measures would further worsen the situation.

Expressing concern over the present situation in the Valley, the ANC, headed by former Chief Minister Ghulam Mohammad Shah, general secretary Advocate Mir Mohammad Shafi held the police and security forces responsible for it.

Peace and normalcy cannot even be dreamed under these circumstances, it said in a statement here today.

To bring normalcy many remedial measures need to be taken without wasting any more time, it added.

Mr Mir, who also heads the Human Rights cell of the ANC, said the use of anti people measures must end and clear instructions be given not to violate Human Rights and dignity of the general public.

He expressed his anguish over the excessive and unwarranted use of force against the processionists in the Valley. Mr Mir particularly referred to attack on Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Mohammad Yaseen Malik, killing and injuring civilians and damage caused to holy shrine of Peer Dastigeer sahib at Sarai Bala by security forces.

He further demanded withdrawal of Armed Forces Special Powers Act.
