Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today said the society as a whole should condemn the recent targeted killings in the valley.

Addressing a gathering after inaugurating the model residential school and Tribal youth Hostel in Kulgam, he said that recently there have been incidents of targeted killings in the valley and society should condemn such acts unequivocally.

“A female teacher who played a key role in shaping a life and imparting education was killed, if society is not condemning it then I understand we are backing off from our duties,” LG Sinha said.

He said that the government forces and police has heavily cracked down on militancy and that militancy is in its last stage in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Every effort is being made to make people free from militancy and path to growth and development is only through peace. Jammu and Kashmir administration has a policy of not touching the innocent and not sparing the culprits,” he said.

He added that targeting innocent people including female teachers was a well-planned move and deliberate attempt to provoke police and security forces so that they could commit a mistake that can set base for street protests.

“In a deliberate and well planned way, targeted killings are being done to provoke the police and forces so that they make a mistake which may result in death of any innocent and people will hit streets, but we won’t do that. There will be no action on any innocent by the J-K administration or police,” he said. (KNS)
