Srinagar, Mar 19: Kashmir Economic Alliance has supported the strike call extended by Joint Resistance Leadership against the brutal custodial killing of Awantipora youth Rizwan Asadh Pandit.
In a statement, Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairman Muhammad Yousuf Chapri and Vice Chairman Ajaz Ahmed Shahdar said that killing of a teacher in cold blood makes it amply clear that people in Kashmir are totally unsafe. They said custodial killing in the civilized world implies that how human values have degraded and how state is sponsoring a system based on suppression, repression and oppression.
“The killing of Rizwan Asad Pandit is police custody is condemnable. It is a naked murder that has not justification. The killers need to be punished without any delay,” they said.
They while extending their support to the strike call forwarded by JRL appealed people mainly business community to observe a complete shutdown against this gruesome killing.
