BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday tore into the Mehbooba Mufti led government in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) for filing an FIR against Army men over the killing of two civilians in Shopian district.
Media outlets have quoted the Swamy saying “What’s this nonsense? Dismiss that government. Tell Mehbooba (Mufti) to withdraw the FIR else her government would be toppled.”
Swamy’s fiery remarks come days after two youths were killed when Army personnel fired at a stone-pelting mob in J&K’s Shopian district on Saturday, prompting chief minister Mehbooba Mufti to order an inquiry into the incident, reported TOI.
On Sunday, police filed an FIR under sections 302 (murder) and 307 (attempt to murder) of the Ranbir Penal Code against the personnel of 10, Garhwal unit, of the Army. A Major, who led the Army personnel at the time of the incident, was also named in the FIR.
