Srinagar, November 19

The People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) has appealed to President Ram Nath Kovind to ensure that the rule of law prevails in J&K and the “erring officials” involved in the killing of civilians in the Hyderpora encounter are brought to book and punished.

In a letter to the President that was issued to the media on Friday, PAGD president Farooq Abdullah said the tragic incident in Hyderpora had evoked enormous public anger. “In this unfortunate incident, three civilians got killed in suspicious circumstances. The incident calls for a time-bound judicial probe so that true facts are unravelled and brought in public domain,” he said. — PTI
