National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah Thursday termed the SIT report into the Hydeprora encounter as “false”, stating that a judicial probe should be brought to justice.
Talking to the reporters on the sidelines of a function at Tagore Hall in Srinagar, Dr Farooq alleged that police (SIT) report into the Hydeprora encounter is “false and wrong”. “Police have tried to save itself as the fact remains police killed those killed in the encounter,” the NC chief alleged.
He said that there should be a judicial probe to nail the truth. Dr Farooq’s statement on Hyderpora comes a day after SIT chairman (DIG Central Kashmir range) had stated that statements from political leaders may invite “penal provisions as per the law” as the same can “trigger fear, alarm and provocation.”
On Real Estate Summit held in Jammu, Dr Farooq said let the world react over it. “What would I say about it, let the world react over it….,” he said.
He said that NC had framed a response about the delimitation panel’s report, which would be made public soon. “We have framed a response to the delimitation panel’s report, which will be made public soon,” he said.
The delimitation panel recently, in its proposal, advocated the addition of six seats to the Jammu region and only one seat to the Kashmir region. However, the proposal evoked sharp criticism and stiff opposition from all the political parties except BJP.
