The agents of the 'enemy' -How much more brazen can Yasin Malik get while GoI warms up to him

The Official website of J&K Govt says" JKLF militnats gunned down 4 IAF men near Rawalpora, Srinagar in Jan. 1990".

Rediff says - in its report the following

The agents of the 'enemy'

Srinagar. January 25, 1990 Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna's misfortune was that he was in uniform.
That winter morning nine years ago, he and his colleagues were waiting near the Rawalpura bus stand. An Indian Air Force bus was to reach them to the airport.
At around 0730 hours a Maruti Gypsy and a two-wheeler carrying four to five Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front militants drew up. The next thing that Khanna knew was bullets pumping into his body. That was the last thing he knew. Around him 13 more fell. Three of them dead, 10 were injured. Hardly 50 yards away was a Jammu and Kashmir police picket, manned by a head constable and seven subordinates. Their eight .303 rifles remained silent as the militants finished emptying their weapons and, taking a clockwise circuit of the roundabout ahead, vanished unhurriedly into Srinagar's numerous back lanes.
Even after he gave up the gun, JKLF leader Yasin Malik was to defend the killings: The IAF personnel were not innocent victims. They were the agents of the 'enemy'.

My soul cries for those young IAF people, some of whom were my neighbourers. I wish we could hang people like yasin without asking them their last wish...

We all cry for the dead. But calling for more death with hangings, etc will only increase the cycle.

And isn't it incorrect to ask fo the death of someone who was NOT a part of that incedent?

Its a known fact that Yasin Malik, Bitta Karate and some others were directly involved in these killings. The case is still on in Jammu TADA Court. The next hearing is on 18th October..
