Vastavam web: Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh today condemned the killing of a policeman in a militant attack in Srinagar, and asserted that terrorism and separatism sponsored by Pakistan would come to an end soon.”We condemn it (the killing of the policeman) in the strongest possible words. This is real face of terrorism, which is thrust upon us by Pakistan. Pakistan has no respect for the auspicious day (of Eid),” Singh told reporters here.
Singh attended a function here to pay tributes to Head Constable Krishen Lal, killed in the militant attack on a police bus on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway in the Pantha Chowk area yesterday.
Singh said, “Krishen Lal has sacrificed his life for the nation. His blood will not go in vain. Definitely the sacrifice will be avenged.” “We are avenging the killing of every innocent whether it is Lt. Umar Fayaz, who sacrificed his life for the nation or other people,” Singh added.”Killing people who are coming in the way of the terrorists is not Islam, whose religious leaders doesn’t approve it. They are killing the people in the name of Islam and it is condemnable,” he added.Singh also warned Pakistan of serious consequences, if it did not stop cross-border firings and attacks on civilians.

This is why we are very much on alert 24/7,” Singh added.”I assure you all that we will give befitting reply to all the challenges and our police force will emerge stronger.Pakistan has made a terrorist environment here. We have faced many challenges of this kind for the past 30 years,” Jamwal said.
