People’s Conference chairman and former minister Sajad Lone described Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, who died in a Jammu hospital, as an “honest politician” and regretted that he died in incarceration.

“Why did he have to die in incarceration and not at his home amongst his kin and loved ones. Have we become so weak that an old infirm dying person is a threat to the state,” Lone said in a tweet.

He said Sehrai was a political leader and “not a terrorist”.

“This is the irony of Kashmiri politics. Top-quality politicians consumed by the conflict,” he said. “The ideological versatility of Kashmir politics is a curse. A transparently honest politician spent decades in jail,” Lone said.
