Fact is police killed civilians in Hyderpora: Farooq slams SIT clean chit to armed forces

National Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah Thursday termed the SIT report into the Hydeprora encounter as “false” stating that there should be a judicial probe to bring justice.

Talking to the reporters on the sidelines of a function at Tagore Hall in Srinagar, Dr. Farooq alleged that the police SIT report into the Hydeprora encounter is “false and wrong”. “Police have tried to save itself as the fact remains those killed in the encounter were killed by police,” the NC chief said.

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.”

At 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.

About the delimitation panel’s report, he said that NC has framed a response and the same 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. The proposal evoked sharp criticism and stiff opposition from all the political parties except BJP.
