Jammu: Panun Kashmir on Thursday demanded immediate disbanding of the interlocutors' panel on Jammu and Kashmir, alleging that their functioning was "shoddy, murky and suspicious".

"We call upon Government of India to immediately disband and cancel the appointment of interlocutors who have only contributed towards keeping the separatist pot boiling in the Jammu and Kashmir," Panun Kashmir chairman Ajay Chrungoo said in a statement.

PK condemns the shoddy, murky and suspicious functioning of the interlocutors, he said.

"By the contents of the (reported) resignation (by interlocutor Radha Kumar) itself it is amply clear that the most sensitive task of negotiations on Jammu and Kashmir has been handed over to persons who have not abandoned their role as lobbyists which they have been performing for decades at the behest of one quarter or the other," Chrungoo alleged.

Kumar had attended a European Parliament conference on Kashmir which was organised by the Tramboo Centre in 2006 in Brussels. The Centre is run by Abdul Majeed Tramboo, a barrister from the Valley, who is said to be under the scanner for his association with the Pakistani establishment, ISI and Ghulam Nabi Fai.
