J&K Assembly on Saturday condemns Bijbehara attack


The Jammu and Kashmir Assembly on Saturday condemned the militant attack on a BSF convoy in Bijbehara area that left three jawans dead and nine others injured.

“This is a genuine concern which the members have raised. The entire House condemns it (the attack),” Speaker Kavinder Gupta said in the Assembly.

The issue was raised by BJP MLA from Naushera, Ravinder Raina, at the start of the Question Hour.

“The House should pass a condemnation resolution against Pakistan for fuelling attacks like the one that took place at Bijbehara yesterday …Three of our jawans have been martyred,” he said.

The BJP MLAs exchanged briefly heated words with independent MLA from Langate, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, who criticised the ruling party members for not raising the issue of Handwara killings.

“Where is the magisterial inquiry report into the killing of five persons in Handwara? You do not talk about it,” Rashid said.

Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists attacked a BSF convoy on Friday killing three personnel and injuring nine others near Bijbehara on Srinagar-Jammu national highway.
