Hyderpora ‘Encounter’: Omar Questions SIT For ‘Rushing’ To Press If Investigation Still Underway

Says Warning People Does No Behove Police

Srinagar, Dec 29: Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah questioned police for “rushing to the press” if it was still investigating 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 in to submission. If the SIT wants people to believe the report it should report the truth, period,” he added.
