Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, while condemning the incident and paying tributes to the deceased CRPF personnel, said the people of the state were the worst sufferers of such attacks as these deprive them of development and employment. Observing that such attacks defame the state, she highlighted that the strike had been carried out during Ramzan, the holy month when people should be seeking forgiveness and expiation for past sins and making sure not to hurt others.
