Hakeem seeks investigation into death of Numberdar due to electrocution

Srinagar, Jun 26: Chairman PDF Hakeem Yaseen Wednesday expressed his sorrow over the death of Numberdar of Macho Beerwa, Shabir Ahmed Malik, who died due to electrocution.
In a statement, Hakeem Yaseen while conveying his sympathies with the bereaved family, has demanded a probe into the killing of Shabir Ahmed Malik.
