Srinagar, March 19: Bhartiya Janata Party state spokesman Altaf Thakur while strongly condemning the death of a teacher from Awantipora in custody Tuesday demanded a thorough and time bound probe to find out how the person died.

In a statement issued here, Thakur said that there should be a time bound and transparent probe into the death of youth identified as Rizwan Pandith of Awantipore. He said teachers are assets of Kashmir and that the death of Rizwan in custody wasn’t a good sign
