The All-Parties Hurriyat Conference on Wednesday demanded a judicial probe into the killing of its senior leader Abdul Gani Lone and security for the slain leader's family members.
A resolution adopted at an emergency meeting of Hurriyat executive in Srinagar said Lone's death was a tragedy for the 23-party amalgam and the people of Kashmir and his death 'created a vacuum that would be difficult to fill'.
The resolution praised Lone, who was shot dead by two unidentified gunmen at public meeting in Srinagar on Tuesday afternoon, for his courage in raising the voice of the people of Kashmir at various fora.
It said Lone served and represented the people throughout his political career.
