Jammu, Apr 7 (PTI) Days after Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti visited the home of a man killed in police firing, the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party today protested here accusing the state government of placating “anti-nationals”.

JKNPP chairman Harsh Dev Singh led a group of party workers during the protest at Exhibition Ground and criticised the PDP-BJP government for sympathising with stone-pelters and “anti-nationals”.

The protesters also burnt an effigy of the BJP.

Gowhar Ahmad Rather, a resident of Kangan, was critically injured in clashes between protesters and security forces on Monday. He succumbed a day later.

Mufti had visited Rather’s home on Thursday.
