Srinagar, Nov 21: Militant outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad Wednesday said Hurriyat leader Mir Hafizullah had been killed by “Indian agents.”
Hafizullah, the Anantnag district president of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, was shot dead from point-blank range by unidentified assailants in Achabal area on Tuesday.
“India is staring at a defeat in Kashmir and its secret agencies have let loose their agents to kill innocent civilians.
Mir Hafizullah was also killed by Indian agents to create an atmosphere of fear in Kashmir,” Jaish spokesperson Mohammad Hassan said in a statement issued to GNS.
Jaish said it will soon avenge the killing of Hafizullah and “other martyrs.” The outfit also paid tributes to all the militants killed in recent past.
