Home Ministry seeks report on Kashmiri youths killing

The Home Ministry on Wednesday sought a report from Jammu and Kashmir government on the killing of two youth allegedly by Army personnel in Budgam district.

In a communication, the Home Ministry asked the State government to give details about the incident, how did it happen and what action has been taken in the aftermath of the killing of the two youth.

They were killed following alleged firing by Army men at Chattergam in Budgam district of Kashmir valley on Monday.

Two youth were also injured in the incident that led to widespread condemnation from various quarters, including the mainstream political parties.

Curfew-like restrictions continued in five police station areas in Srinagar as a precautionary measure even as normal life across Kashmir was affected on Wednesday following a call for general strike by separatist groups to protest the killing of the two youth.
