PDP demands judicial probe into killing of Gujjar youth

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday demanded a judicial probe into the alleged killing of a member of a Gujjar community during an anti encroachment drive in the Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.

“The killing of a civilian is unfortunate and the PDP demands that a judicial probe be immediately ordered into the killing,” senior PDP leader and former Education minister Naeem Akhtar told reporters here on Tuesday.

A member of the Gujjar community was killed during the clashes between an anti encroachment team of the Jammu Development Authority (JDA) and the encroachers in the Sarore area of Samba district on Monday.

“Encroachments were also removed in our time but nobody lost his life at that time.A fair probe should be held into the killing of the civilian so that a message of justice should go to the people of the state and at a time when there is no political government,” he said.
