Farooq Abdullah demands judicial probe into Hyderpora killing

Jammu, November 22 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the National Conference President, Farooq Abdullah has said that they are not satisfied with the magisterial probe ordered into the Hyderpora killing and want a judicial probe by a sitting judge.

Farooq Abdullah talking to reporters in Jammu said that in the wake of recent rollback of farmer law, he was hopeful that the Indian Prime Minister, Narendera Modi would listen to the “heart beats of people of Kashmir and order for the restoration of statehood and 370.”

“I am sure if PM Modi really wants to remove Dil ki doori and Dili ki doori, he will restore the statehood to J&K and also the whatever autonomy has been eroded by rolling back Article 370 and Article 35 A,” Farooq Abdulla added.

Replying to a query how he sees the Hyderpora killing, the NC chief said that he and his party were not satisfied with the magisterial probe ordered by the authorities in which four persons including a building owner and a businessman were killed on November 15.

“A magistrate is a government man and he always comes under government influence and speaks government language. That’s why we demand judicial inquiry,” he maintained.

About terminating the employees, the NC president said that it was disgraceful and the government should re-appoint the daily-wagers it has fired recently.

On how he sees the blast outside army camp in Pathankote, Farooq Abdullah said that it was nothing new and such issues could be resolved through dialogue with Pakistan. “I saw a new village coming up in Arunachal Pradesh where Chinese people are living. If the Government of India can talk to China why can’t they talk to Pakistan, which is the closest neighbor,” he said. “When Sialkot route can be reopened for talks, why can’t there be a dialogue over the LoC. See, I repeat we can’t snatch anything neither have to we give away anything.”

To a query whether NC was ready for elections, he said: “Hold polls tomorrow, we are very much ready.”
