Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Muhammad Yasin Malik on Wednesday appealed United Jihad Council (UJC) Chief Syed Sallahuddin to investigate the Sopore killings.
He suggested that the UJC chief should form a probe committe to investigate and identify people behind the Sopore attack in which a BSNL employee and a mobile tower owner were killed.
Addressing a news conference in Srinagar, Malik said, "I cannot ask the government to probe the attack, but I can suggest UJC chief to waste no time and form an investigative team and identify those who are involved in these barbaric act."
Meanwhile, BJP leader Hina Bhat slammed Malik's appeal for a probe by Pakistan occupied Kashmir based UJC and said that he has no right to talk on Sopore issue when they themselves provoke such issues.
Both state government and militants have disowned the attack and UJC too have distanced itself from the killings.
