A party spokesman said people should not take law into their hands, but rather should make efforts to restore peace and normalcy.

"Whatever happened at the Jamia Masjid area is inhuman and cannot be tolerated. The Congress strongly condemns innocents' killings. JKPCC expresses deep sorrow over this unfortunate incident. It as a murder of humanity," the spokesman said.

"The killing of any innocent person will be treated as a move to vitiate peace, which should not happen in a disciplined society," he said.

The party offered condolences to the bereaved family and prayed for courage to bear the irreparable loss, he said.

DSP Mohammed Ayub Pandit 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 on Friday.
