Report News Not Rumors: Omar To Media

KL Report


Expressing his displeasure over what he termed as the “inaccurate” reporting by some sections of media about the deaths in the Ramban firing incident, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Friday said it does not help in improving the situation on the ground.

“As deeply as I regret yesterday’s deaths, the inaccurate reporting of death toll is unprofessional and certainly does not help us on the ground,” Omar wrote on twitter.

He said many TV news channels and websites of leading national newspapers were reporting a higher death toll in the firing incident than the official figure of four.

“We have had four deaths, not six/seven as some channels/websites are insisting and all injured are stable and out of danger. Even four is four too many,” Omar wrote.

“It would certainly be expected from nationally reputed news sites that they would make an effort to report accurate news and not rumors,” Omar added.
