Mamata expresses concern over J&K situation

Kolkata: July 11, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today expressed concern over the present situation in Jammu and Kashmir where clashes between protesters and security personnel following the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani left 23 dead and over 250 injured. “We are all concerned about J&K. It is close to our heart. So many lives have been lost. We pray for peace, prosperity and humanity,” Banerjee said in a statement. A police station was torched in Sopore and mobs targeted an air force airport in Pulwama today even as normal life continued to be paralysed due to curfew-like restrictions and separatists-sponsored strike since Saturday.
