Jammu: PDP on Tuesday warned the Jammu and Kashmir
government to withdraw cases registered against 5,000 youths
for stone pelting during the 2010 summer unrest in Srinagar or
else the party would launch an agitation.

"We will agitate in every nook and corner of Kashmir if
the government did not withdraw the FIRs against the youths,"
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti said in the state Assembly.

The Leader of the Opposition in JK Assembly said, "These
youths are very young and you (the JK government) are playing
with their career of these youth...teenagers were lodged in
jails for stone-pelting and about 5,000 FIRs are still pending
in various police stations."
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah informed the
Legislative Assembly that 5,786 people were arrested under
substantive and preventive laws during the last two years in
the state.
