Hyderpora encoutner: Omar questions SIT for rushing to press if investigation still underway


Says Warning People Does No Behove Police

SRINAGAR: Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah questioned the police for “rushing to the press” if it was still investigating the Hyderpora shootout.

“If the SIT is “still investigating the matter” then what was the need to rush to the press with a statement yesterday? I don’t recall reading anywhere that yesterday’s report was an interim one,” Omar said in a tweet.

“As to the “threat of penal action”. Criticising the report, whether interim or final is the right of any citizen & it does not behove J&K police to be trying to threaten people into submission. If the SIT wants people to believe the report it should report the truth, period,” he added. (GNS)
