An off-duty railway constable was shot dead at Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district today, days after 25-year-old Sub-inspector Arshad Ahmad Mir was killed by terrorists in Srinagar.

Constable Bantu Sharma was killed near his home at Wanpoh village in the district.

Condemning the killing, Peoples Conference president Sajad Lone tweeted, “Strongly condemn the killing of a police man in Kulgam. May Allah give patience to the family of Bantu Sharma to bear this loss. And May the killers rot in hell.”

Omar Abdullah, vice-president of National Conference and former chief minister, condemned the incident too. “I unequivocally condemn the militant attack in Kulgam district of South Kashmir. My heartfelt condolences to the family & colleagues of Constable Bantoo Sharma of Railway Protection Force who was killed in the line of duty earlier this evening. May his soul rest in peace.”

The National Conference’s official handle tweeted, Condemn the killing of Railway Constable Bantu Sharma in South Kashmir’s Wanpoh in the strongest possible terms. Such cowardly acts are against the entire mankind. May the deceased rest in peace. Thoughts and prayers with his family.”

The incident comes close on the heels of the killing of sub-inspector Mir last week.
