Will hunt down those who killed students: Guv Malik

Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 18: Forty eight hours after a juvenile and one youth were killed by terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir, state Governor Satya Pal Malik vowed to take revenge for the deaths.
He condemned the killing of a Kashmiri youth saying that though it was an isolated incident, the act showed how desperate Pakistan based operatives and terrorists were. "All I can say is we will hunt them down soon," Malik said.
The reaction comes shortly after a 17-year-old boy from Safanagri village was killed on Thursday night after he was suspected of being an informer for security forces.
A video of the incident went viral on social media drawing strong condemnation from various sections of society. This was followed by the killing of 19-year-old whose body was found with his throat slit in Shopian district.
Terming the deaths as the "frustration of Pakistan-based elements", Malik said, "These are desperate terror operatives. They (militants) said elections won't happen, there was a record turnout. Now targeting these young men is their frustration."
The governor however called out separatists for not condemning the incident. He said everyone, including separatists, need to condemn the killing of a student. Hinting that even mainstream political parties take extreme stands, Malik said mainstream political parties knew what they say is wrong and that they were running an impossible narrative. Satyapal Malik said he was on an outreach mission here. He said Prime Minister Modi had good intentions, saying he would do his (Malik's) work and listen to the people.
"Everyone from all walks of life have an opinion on resolving the issue of Kashmir. When I became the governor of J&K, I didn't exactly know what to do. But being a governor is like a boy with fever. Everyone will give you a piece of advice," Malik said.
"I met with the youth of the state who are not affiliated to any political party or organisation. I spoke to them and they told me that youth like them between the ages of 18 and 30 years were large in number. They said they didn't see any hope in Hurriyat, Pakistan, India or political parties.They said they just wanted me to address the issues of the youth," he said.
He hinted that the situation had improved and that stone pelting incidents had come down. He said the temperament had improved and only one youth had picked up a gun during his tenure.
