New Delhi, Feb 4 (Only Kashmir): Centre's interlocutors on Jammu and Kashmir today condemned the killing of two girls by militants in Kashmir and hoped that the guilty would be punished swiftly.
The panel appreciated the State government's efforts to punish the guilty.
"The condemnation expresses a growing disgust of violence perpetrated against innocents for political or ideological ends," the three-member group -- Dileep Padgaonkar, Prof Radha Kumar and M M Ansari -- said in a statement.
Arifa (19) and Akhtar (17), daughters of Ghulam Nabi Dar, were gunned down by three militants, including a Pakistani, at around 10 PM at Muslim Peer in Sopore town, 52 kms from Srinagar on January 31.
"Our group commends the state government for its vigorous efforts to bring the guilty to book and hopes that this is done swiftly and in a transparent manner," the interlocutors said.
