VDC Terror: ‘Govt’s Denial to Disband VDCs Responsible for Two More Killings’



AIP @ Kalakote

Awami Ittihaad Party (AIP) chief and MLA Langate Er Rasheed while condemning the brutal incident of Rajouri where a lady Shameema Akhtar and her four year old minor kid Tawheed Ahmad were shot dead by a Village Defence Committee (VDC) member, said that all levels of “tolerance have been crossed by these state sponsored terrorists”.

“The incident comes after Dy CM Nirmal Singh rejected disbanding of VDCs. His statement was enough to provoke these terrorists to kill the innocents in Rajouri and add to the already charged atmosphere. All political parties cutting across party lines badly need to take a stand against this state sponsored terrorist outfit and ensure that the committees are disbanded and weapons whatsoever are snatched from them. It is time to perform the duty without playing politics and prove that humanity and lives of humans are much more precious than anything else,” Rasheed said in a party statement.

Meanwhile an AIP delegation today visited Kalakote to offer condolences to the family of late Ishtiyaq Chowdhary who was murdered by the VDC member few days back.

Speaking on the occasion Molvi Shabir reiterated the demand of disbanding the VDCs.

He asked the local MLA and BJP Minister, Ab Gani Kohli, to “stop shedding crocodile tears and resign from the BJP if he feels pain of people”.
