CPI (M) state secretary and MLA Kulgam, M Y Tarigami, has regretted the death of a shepherd Ashiq Hussain Chopan of Gutroo, Tral, in a blast near an army camp at Awantipora, in Pulwama district on Monday, demanding probe into the incident.

“Police should conduct inquiry into the incident to ascertain how the blast went off and the circumstances which took away the life of the poor shepherd,” Tarigami said in a statement.

“The shepherds live a poor life and rearing and grazing sheep is their only source of livelihood. In this case, the family has lost their bread earner, so the government should pay compensation to it,” he said.
