SRINAGAR, AUGUST 18: Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, has strongly condemned the killing of a policeman and a civilian in a militant attack on a police-post, outside the shrine of Sheikh Hamza Makhdoomi (RA), at Tujjar Sharief, Sopore, in Baramulla district today.
In his condolence message, Mufti Sayeed said those responsible for such dastardly acts have no respect for human lives.

The Chief Minister expressed solidarity with the bereaved families of the policeman, Fayaz Ahmad Bhat of Wadoora, Sopore and civilian, Abdul Rahim Lone, from Tujjar, and prayed to Almighty Allah to give them courage to bear the loss of their dear ones. He also prayed for eternal peace to the departed souls and wished speedy recovery to those injured in the attack.
