Bar Association condemns killing of Hurriyat leader

Demands probe by independent agency

Srinagar, Nov 20: J&K High Court Bar Association, Srinagar has strongly condemned the killing of Mir Hafizullah, district president, Tehreek-i-Hurriyat, Anantnag and called the attack a “beastly act”
The Bar Association in a statement said that in the killing of Hafizullah, the people of Kashmir have lost a “sincere, dedicated and honest soul of the soil, who has for the most of his life, preferred incarceration rather than succumbing to the threats, pressure tactics and intimidations extended to him by those, who are opposed to the just cause of the people of Kashmir”.
“We demand the killing of Mir Hafizullah be probed by an independent agency, so that those who have committed the dastardly act do not go unpunished,” it said.
