‘NC leader`s killing shows militants` frustration’
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said the killing of National Conference leader in the city was evident of mounting frustration among militants.
"The influence of militancy (in the state) has waned... Militants` growing frustration is evident in the fact that they are hitting at soft targets...We will make all effort to finish militancy from the state," he told reporters here.
National Conference block president Abdul Rehman Ganie was shot dead yesterday by two motorcycle-borne militants while he was leaving home to offer Friday prayers at Natipora in the suburbs of the city.
