Jammu, July 23 : Samba MLA Yashpal Kundal has come forward to support the agitation of the family members of slain peace activists Hoshiar Singh and his wife Shashi Bala, who were killed during a terrorist attack in Samba last year.
For the past 13 days the family members and the supporters of the slain peace activists have been sitting on a chain hunger strike demanding a thorough probe into the killing alleging a conspiracy behind it.
Few days ago an english paper had highlighted the issue and had reported that since the murder of husband and wife for the first time the family has sought a probe into the incident.
“I was pained to see that the peace of the area is struggling in a democratic and peaceful method by sitting in a hunger strike for the past 13 days, so far nobody from the state has attended them to pacify the agitators,” Kundal said.
Kundal had appealed to the government to pay urgent heed towards the genuine demands of Samba people so that the situation may not go out of control.
