New Delhi: The massacre of school children in Peshawar reflects the "inhuman and depraved state of mind" of the Taliban, CPI(M) said on Wednesday.
Expressing shock and horror at the mass killings, the party Politburo denounced "this unspeakable atrocity committed by the Tehrik-e-Taliban which shows their inhuman and depraved state of mind."
"Both India and Pakistan should cooperate to put an end to the depredations of the extremist-terrorist groups," the CPI(M) said.
The statement said the party "shares the anguish of the parents and families of those have been killed" and expressed solidarity with the people of Pakistan who are facing this terrorist violence.
In the bloodiest terror attack in Pakistan in years, at least 141 people, mostly children, were killed yesterday by heavily-armed Taliban suicide bombers who stormed an Army-run school in Peshawar and took several hostage.
