New Delhi: Congress on Wednesday said the opposition
parties should be satisfied with the judicial probe ordered by
the Jammu and Kashmir government into the alleged custodial
death of a ruling National Conference worker.

Party General Secretary and Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said judicial probe should be "acceptable" to the
opposition parties.
"That (judicial) probe should be acceptable," he said when
asked about PDP`s demand for resignation of Chief Minister
Omar Abdullah on the issue.

Congress is part of the Omar Abdullah government in the
state.
"If it is a judicial probe which is different from an
ordinary probe which was ordered earlier it is by and large
very judicious," he said.

Syed Mohammad Yousuf, a National Conference worker, died
allegedly in police custody on Friday last after he was
detained for questioning along with two other middle-rung
leaders of the party in connection with a case.
