Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister
Omar Abdullah and a host of leaders today condemned the attack
on the entourage of state minister Ali Mohammad Sagar terming
it as an act of cowardice.
"These are activities that are condemned by one and all,"
Omar said adding the state as a whole was against violence and
Jammu and Kashmir Assembly Speaker Mohammad Akbar Lone
condemned the attack describing it as an "act of cowardice".
"Such attacks by militants will not weaken the resolve of
peace-loving people of the state who strongly aspire for the
development and progress in Jammu and Kashmir," he said.
Describing the attack as a "dastardly and an inhuman
act", CPI(M) state secretary and MLA M Y Tarigami said it was
carried out by "elements inimical to peace and progress of
Jammu and Kashmir".
Sagar, a senior National Conference leader who holds
Rural Development and Law portfolios, escaped unhurt in the
attack which left one dead and three injured in downtown
Srinagar last night.
