The late head constable, Ali Muhammad Ganie, was killed last week at 5.35 PM near his residence after terrorists opened fire on him. Even though he was rushed to the nearest government hospital in Anantnag, he died on the way, as per the doctors.
He was posted as a head constable at the Kulgam police station. Various leaders across various parties condemned his killing as “cowardly” and “deplorable.”
Altaf Thakur, a Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson, said, “Strongly denounce the killing of Policeman at Bijbehara. Its barbaric, condemnable and deplorable act urges police top brass to punish killers forthwith.“
“Unequivocally condemn the cowardly attack on Jammu and Kashmir police Head Constable Ali Muhammad Ganie in Anantnag’s Hassanpora area in which he lost his life. Our condolences go out to his family, friends, and colleagues. May Allah grants him a place in Jannat,” Jammu and Kashmir National Conference tweeted.
