‘Chattergam incident has nothing to do with militancy’

SHABIR IBN YOUSUF

Srinagar, Oct 25: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Thursday said that Srinagar was much “safe and secure” and Chattergam firing incident in which solider was killed and two others injured had nothing to do with militancy.
 Talking to reporters after prize distribution of T-20 final played between Gani Memorial Cricket Club and Hawal Cricket Club at TRC, Omar Abdullah ruled out any militant threat in Srinagar. “There is no militant threat. Srinagar is safe and secure,” he said while responding to a question.
 On the Chattergam Budgam incident in which two soldiers were killed, Omar said: “Chattergam Budgam incident should not be linked to militancy. As per my reports it was firing between Army and Army.”
 About the likely induction of All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Rahul Gandhi into union Cabinet, Chief Minister denied to comment. “It is between Rahul Ji and Prime Minister,” Omar said.
 Chief Minister who was the chief guest on the occasion said that the Shaher-e-Khaas teams need to learn to catch. “They are good at throwing and not catching. They must learn to catch as well,” Omar said.
 Chief Minster also admitted that playgrounds have not been constructed up to the mark.” “ IG told me that players seem hesitant in driving on the ground, but I know if they will do that , they will have to be admitted in hospital as pitches have not been carved uniformly, pitch is bouncy and sloppy at many places. But I assure you that pitches will be made world class and there will be all cooperation from my side.”
 On the occasion, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Zone, SM Sahai said that there is no militant threat in Srinagar and that Eid –ul-Azha will pass off peacefully. “We do not have input or threat, Srinagar is quite safe,” the IGP said.
 He said police was in-favour that separatists too should offer Friday and Eid congregation prayers. “But they create law and order problems,” he said adding that adequate security arrangements have been made so the Eid passes off peacefully.
