Srinagar: Former Deputy Chief Minister and BJP politician Dr Nirmal Singh on Wednesday said that Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah are tool-kits who operate on behalf of Pakistan.
Singh’s remarks came a day after Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) termed the police version with regard to the Hyderpora military operation as a ‘concocted, cover-up story’.
Four persons were killed in a contentious Hyderpora military operation in November.
Yesterday, DIG, central Kashmir Range Sujit Kumar who headed the Special Investigation Team probing the killings had said that though the investigation is still in progress but prima facie it seems that Dr Mudasir Gul was killed by the foreign militant while building owner Altaf Bhat lost his life in cross-firing after militants made him a human shield.
The statement soon invited a sharp reaction from PAGD which reiterates its demand for a judicial probe into the incident.
Singh said that the report with regard to the Hyderpora military operation submitted by SIT has made things clear and truth has finally surfaced.
“I want to ask Omar Abdulla and Mehbooba Mufti why they are putting question marks over the sacrifices being made by the armed forces to end militancy in Kashmir,” Singh said.
“They were claiming that police made the victims’ human shields but it has become now clear that they were made human shields by militants,” he added. (KNT)
