Reiterating her call for a dialogue to end bloodshed, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday called the death of scholar-turned-militant as “our loss”, saying “we are losing young boys every day”.

“Today a PhD scholar chose death over life & was killed in an encounter. His death is entirely our loss as we are losing young educated boys every day,” she tweeted.

Calling for a dialogue with all stakeholders to end bloodshed, she said: “It is high time that all the political parties in the country realise the gravity of this situation and try to facilitate a solution through dialogue with all the stake holders including Pakistan to end this bloodshed.”

Wani was among two militants killed in a gunfight with the government forces in Shatgund village of frontier district of Kupwara on Thursday.
