PAKISTAN FUNDING STONE-PELTERS: CRPF
Srinagar, Oct 25: The outgoing Special Director General of paramilitary CRPF Monday said that Kashmir stone-pelters were funded by Pakistan.
“Stone pelting in the Valley was multi-dimensional and even had large scale monetary support of across the border,” said Special DG CRPF NK Tripathi
Tripathi said there are intercepts which prove that there is support from outside and money comes from across which is paid to stone-pelters.
Earlier, the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram had said that the stone-pelters had support of Pakistan and even militant outfits like Laskar-e-Toiba, but local opinion was that most of the protests were spontaneous. Later, even Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had described the stone-pelters as leaderless youth.
But forces, say ulterior motives cannot be ruled out. This year, agitations could even spill over to the winters. The greater concern, however, is the visit of US President Barack Obama to India next month (November).
"The separatist have tasted this sort of authority on the masses. There may be sporadic incidents in winter," Tripathi said.
Tripathi is being replaced by Anirudh Uppal, as the Special DG CRPF Jammu and Kashmir. Uppal is presently working as Additional Director General, Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).
