Jammu, January 29:

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti administered a severe snub to the alliance partner  BJP and declared that she would  take the FIR against the army personnel in the killing of two Shopian youth  to its “ logical conclusion.”

Her declaration came in response to the plea by the BJP lawmaker  R S Patpointed  who pointed out the legal infirmities in the FIR registered against the army  and asked Chief  Minister  to withdraw the  FIR in its present  form . She was all fire and brimstone against the  civilian killings and she said that “ the youth  killed in the army firing were  our children.”

Mehbooba drew a clear difference between the stone pelting youth and the army , by calling the former as “ our children”.

Cornered by the opposition , particularly National Conference leader Omar Abdullah  for “ doing politics on dead bodies,” Mehbooba said that her government would take the probe to the logical conclusion . She said  in the Assembly that she would personally monitor this .

The army, however, has maintained that it  had fired in self-defence as its convoy had come under severe attack  from  a highly volatile and violent crowd of stone throwers.
