Omar asks admin to establish factual position in Budgam killing

SRINAGAR, NOV 24: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday asked the government to end ambiguity surrounding the killing of a man in a firing incident in central Kasmir’s Budgam district last night.

“Conflicting reports of the circumstances surrounding Ishfaq Ahmed’s shooting. It’s imperative that the administration establish the factual position to the satisfaction of the people, especially Ishfaq’s family. May Ishfaq find his place in Jannat,” tweeted Abdullah.

Reports said that Ishfaq was killed after army allegedly opened fire in Chattergam area of Budgam district last night. However, army refuted the allegations, claiming that Ishfaq was shot at by the militants “500-600 metres” from the Chattergam army camp.
