NPP condemned killing of youth in Jammu, Demands judicial probe & action against the killers

Prof.Bhim Singh, Member of NIC, Shri Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman-JKNPP and Shri Balwant Singh Mankotia, President-JKNPP condemned brutal killing of young man, S. Jagjeet Singh in Jammu yesterday while the people were protesting against police. The NPP leaders demanded high power judicial inquiry and a compensation of Rs.1 crore to the family of the deceased young man who has been killed ruthlessly in the day light and public while exercising his right to protest. Right to protest, express views and right to speech is fundamental right of every citizen and its denial is an offence.

          The NPP leaders accused PDP-BJP government for creating such a situation in the peace-loving city of temples by such dastardly acts to divert the attention of the citizens in Jammu from the real issues and upper most is the AIIMS. The NPP leaders said that the latest bandh observed in Jammu in one voice and unity demonstrated by the residents of Jammu Pradesh had shaken the coalition government. This outrageous act of gunning down a young man was aimed to create tension and disturbed harmony.

          They said that the law of the land does not authorize anybody, even the kings and monarchs to kill any person. There is law of the land to deal with any situation or with any offence committed by any person or persons.    

          The NPP leaders made an appeal to the people of Jammu from all walks of life to keep their centuries’ old tradition of communal harmony which has been a cultural entity of the people of Jammu.
