Srinagar: A day after a custodial death of a man in north Kashmir’s Sopore town, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said stern action will be taken against those responsible for it.
“We have initiated steps to enquire into the circumstances that led to this death in custody; action will be definitely taken against the person involved in it, he said while interacting with the media persons.”
Omar said that his government was not interested in covering up the fact, not he was protecting anybody.”We are not interested in covering up any of the facts or protecting anybody. Certain steps have been taken under Section 302 (murder)” he said.
He further said “We will make an example to bring the guilty behind the bars so that nobody decides that the law can be treated shabbily,” he said.
When asked whether the investigations would take months, Omar said: “I want this done in days, not weeks, not months. I have told minister of state, home, that I want immediate action in the matter.”
“Within 24 hours of time we have registered a case. You should give us time so that nothing is done that would compromise the law,” he said. (AIP)
