Jammu, November 9 ( JKNT)

Jammu University Vice Chancellor  R D Sharma Wednesday  said  that “ it would have been better had Hizb –ul-Mujadeen commander Burhan Wani  been captured alive and arrested instead of being killed in an encounter.”

Talking to media  persons  here  this afternoon, the Vice Chancellor  argued that  Burhan Wani should not have been killed. “ He should have been arrested  and even put behind bar for life ,  Kashmir could have been spared of all the death and destruction that it suffered in the past four months.”


The vice chancellor ‘s observations  were an  echo of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who had said that  had” it been known that Burhan was in the hideout , he could have been given a chance ( to  escape)”

Sharma who is trying to be on the right side of Mehbooba Mufti, who also is the pro-chancellor of the university . He is looking for an  extension  for himself.

The Vice Chancellor had convened the press conference  to celebrate the  A plus grade conferred by the NAAC  after inspecting the university in the last week of  September.
