Srinagar, October 22: A day after the unexploded shell resulted in the death seven youth including a teenager at Laroo, Kulgam, plunging entire Kashmir into a deep shock and grief, the locals of Laroo today questioned the forces, especially police as to how they left the gunfight site without sanitising the area.
“We don’t want to listen to the theories of any security official. Our only question is that how forces left the place of encounter without cleaning it. Or why forces didn’t stay at the gunfight site till its sanitisation,” said Rafiq Ahmed, a resident of Laroo, whose relative died in the explosion yesterday.
Many elders of the area while supporting Rafiq’s claim said that it seemed a deliberate attempt to leave littered explosives at the site of encounter to instil fear among locals. “Forces should be blamed for the killing of all seven young budding flowers,” the Laroo elders, told KNO.
