Khan, Shah booked for instigating stone pelters
Srinagar, Feb 13: Government has charged the senior separatist leaders, Nayeem Ahmed Khan and Shabir Ahmed Shah, who were booked under Public Safety Act on Thursday, of fomenting trouble in the Valley and instigating youth to indulge in stone pelting.
“The most common tool used by the secessionists to disrupt the peace has been to instigate and incite the youth to resort to stone pelting. Investigations have revealed that the secessionist including you ( Nayeem Khan and Shabir Shah) have been working behind the scene to organize the stone pelting incidents,” the separate 4-page Grounds of Detention issued against the duo by the District Magistrate here, read.
Both Khan and Shah, the detention grounds said, were found to be on the forefront of organizing the violent protests even during the 2008-Amarnath land row in the Valley. “You continue to do so even today and indulge in anti-national activities,” read the dossier.
It said in the recent past Shah and Khan had been advocating the cause of secessionism by launching campaigns aimed at propagating the secessionist ideology and inciting the youth to create law and order problem. “This new strategy is highly prejudicial to the maintenance of the security of the state besides endangering human life and property,” it added.
“Your role in organizing the stone pelting is very critical as on one hand the cadres of your parties, National Front and Democratic Freedom Party, mix-up with the common people at your behest and instigate them to resort to stone pelting and on the other hand you back it by issuing inflammatory statements thus creating hatred against union of India,” the dossier added.
Quoting the statements of Khan and Shah, the dossier said they had been even discrediting the police versions saying that the militants were sacrificing their lives for secession of the state. “Intelligence reports have revealed that while defending the activities of the militants you ask the youth to come on roads and resort to stone pelting which has been going on in Srinagar city and other towns of the Valley,” it said.
