"It is a heinous crime and no words are enough to condemn it. It is very unfortunate," Tarigami told PTI in Srinagar.

The legislator from south Kashmir's Kulgam appealed to the people to condemn such acts of barbarism. "We strongly believe that such incidents do not serve the interests of the people of the state".

"We, CPM, condemn whatever injustice is committed by the state, the government and appeal the people to condemn such acts of barbarism", he said.

Mohammad Ayub Pandith, a deputy superintendent of police, was stripped naked and stoned to death by an irate mob after he allegedly opened fire at a group of people, who caught him clicking pictures near a mosque in downtown area in the early hours on Friday.
