'Attacks Mysterious'

Srinagar, Jan 13: Terming the killing of a Sarpanch in Sopore and another attack on woman Panch as “mysterious incidents”, the Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Sunday said it was not clear who was behind these killings.
 “The statements made by the Sarpanch association needs to be given a thorough consideration,” Geelani said in a statement issued here. “The killings of Sarpanchs have created doubts in the mind of a common man.”
 He said though the State administration has blamed militants for the killing of Panchayat representatives, so far no investigation has proved militant hand behind the incidents. “At the same time, no militant outfit has claimed responsibility of the attacks on Sarpanchs,” he said. “This all has made the incidents including those happened in the past as mysterious.”
 Referring to the detention of Hurriyat(G) worker, Abdullah Nasir, Geelani said that police charged him with murder of a Sarpanch. “But Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has refuted the charges and said that militants were not involved in these killings. Number of agencies are working as per their assigned agenda,” he said.
 Geelani said in the past, “Under the fictitious cover of Al-Faran, agencies killed foreign tourists to malign the movement and later blamed militant organizations.”
