JAMMU, APR 20:
Panun Kashmir President, Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, who is on a two-week “Kashmir Sankalp Yatra” Phase-6 programme, camping presently at Ahmadabad, Gujarat while addressing cross-section of people here stressed the importance of CBI probe into the Kathua carnage.
He was addressing an intellectual meet at Business Pinnacle Centre presided over by Shri S.K.Bhan, President, Kaushur Milchar, Ahmadabad, in which he said that the Kathua carnage has raised a number of questions regarding various activities in the sensitive state of Jammu and Kashmir. The people of Kathua district have virtually lost their faith in the state-run SIT and Crime Branch probe into the incident. The way the issue was raised has put the State government in the dock because of the fact that a number of officers involved in the probe are themselves facing serious charges of moral and criminal turpitude. The post-mortem report is not also in tune with the conclusions of the probe and create questions even on the charge sheet filed. There are various factors those have been inducted from outside the state which involves even the collection of funds by dubious characters. The agitation launched by the people of Kathua, lawyers and the Jammu Bar Association has complete sense and it needs to be determined as to who were the people who tried to ignite the fire to create social unrest under the cover of rape and murder issue and their intention to commualise the environment also is a matter of concern for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
