‘Bullying Us Won’t Work’, Says Mehbooba After SIT Warning

SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party leader Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that political parties’ statements on the Special Investigation Team’s inquiry into last month’s Hyderpora gunfight in Kashmir were not “mere speculation”.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Mehbooba wrote, “Remarks on the SIT probe by different policial parties isn’t mere speculation. They are grounded in facts. The administration’s aversion & discomfort with truth coming to the fore is well known. Bullying us into silence by ‘penal action’ warnings wont work.”

The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday had warned the residents and politicians for making “speculative statements” about the investigation into the gunfight.

The officers had said that they had come across several posts by political leaders and family members, expressing doubt about the evidence collected during the investigation. “These people have tried to call it ‘Concocted Cover up Story’, ‘Ornamental Probe’, ‘Clean Chit to Killers’, ‘Fairy Tale of Police’ etc,” the statement read.
