Jammu: On the ninth anniversary of
Parliament attack, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar
Abdullah on Monday said the judicial process in Afzal Guru case
should be completed irrespective of its implications in the
country and the state.
"We have a system in the country where processes have
to be completed. Let the process be completed in the case of
Guru," Omar said, when asked by reporters on the sidelines of
a function at Zorawar Singh Auditorium here.
To a question about the implications if the Parliament
attack convict`s hanging is confirmed, Omar said, "After the
judicial process is completed, we will sit and see what can be
its implication in the country and in Jammu and Kashmir."
On holding of Panchayat elections in the state, Omar said
the exercise is carried out in the state on a non-party basis
so that more people can be involved.
"These elections would help in devolution of power to
the grassroots democratic institutions - known as Panchayats,"
About the physical assault by alleged stone pelters on
youth going for police recruitment in Kashmir recently, Omar
said he would find out the details of the incident.
