Srinagar, Jan 1: National Conference Member of Parliament Friday said that Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has assured him of an impartial probe into the Srinagar encounter.
Joint Forces claimed that it killed three militants in Hokarsar Lawaypora area in an encounter. However, families of these slain youth contended the claims of Army saying they were students not militants. Police later on in a statement said that two among the slain youth were ‘hardcore’ over ground workers while third may have joined militant ranks recently.
