Jammu: Maintaining that Dileep Padgaonkar
the chief interlocutor on J&K should have been more careful
with reference to Kashmir American Council President Dr Gulam Nabi Fai, Kashmir Committee today said the decision on his
fate should be decided by the government.
"That (sacking of Padgaonkar) is a matter for the
government to decide," Kashmir Committee Chairman and jurist
Ram Jethmalani told reporters here late this afternoon.
He was replying to questions about Padgaonkar`s fate
in the aftermath of revelations that the chief interlocutor
participated in seminars organised by Dr Fai`s association.
"Padgaonkar has said that I did not know what was
happening and who is he and what is he doing. I believe him.
He should have been more careful," he said.
"It is unnecessarily disgracing him," KC chairman
Fai, 62, was arrested in the US on July 19 by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation on charges of receiving funds
from the ISI and using it to inappropriately lobby the US
government over Kashmir.
