KL Report


Criticizing the separatist leadership for announcing shut down and protests against the death of a Kashmiri youth in Hyderabad, Director General of Police, Ashok Prasad said the protest calendar was an attempt to mislead people.

“The protest calendar is based on rumours and the separatists have announced it without knowing the facts. They are trying to spread panic among people through such calls”, the DGP told KNS.

“They don’t know what the case is about and announced protests on the basis of rumors”, he said and added that he had personally contacted Hyderabad Police Chief in this regard who has informed him that a case stands filed and investigations are going on.

He said the body of the deceased student, Mudasir Kamran, will take some time to reach his home. “The body will reach Delhi late in the night and will be then shifted to valley”, he added.

The DGP said the police was ready for handling any eventuality in wake of the protest calendar issued by the MMM.

“Section 144 is already imposed and further restrictions could be imposed as a precautionary measure in specific areas where the situation demands. People should not give ear to rumors and we appeal them to support the police and administration”, he added.
