While expressing solidarity with the victim families, he urged the UN to resolve the Kashmir dispute to put an end to the killings in IIOJK.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Front in a statement while condemning the brutal killing in a statement said that the gruesome murder was a telling proof of the atrocities perpetrated by Indian forces on innocent Kashmiris.
