Srinagar, Mar 22: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) today condemned the killing of one of its activists in police firing in Pakistan-administered-Kashmir (PaK).

“Instead of using foul language against freedom lovers, Government of Azad Kashmir (PaK) should call for an impartial judicial probe into firing on peaceful protest at Madarpor near Line of Control (LoC) and take action against the culprits who killed Naeem Butt with impunity,” JKLF chief Muhammad Yasin Malik said at a condolence meeting here.

He said on March 16, JKLF had called for a peaceful march during which Naeem Butt along with many others received bullets fired by the PaK police on their bodies.

“Naeem succumbed to his wounds yesterday,” Malik said.

He claimed bullets were showered on peaceful protesters adding that the killers of Naeem Butt deserved exemplary punishment.

In a separate press release, JKLF also informed that PaK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider has announced a judicial probe into the killing of Naeem Butt as was demanded by JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik.
