Several persons are being questioned and hopefully we will get some lead, Ashok Prasad said adding that stone pelting was a criminal activity and whosoever indulges in it will face the music.
Who told you that we have started a crackdown of MMM and other Hurriyat leaders? We have no animosity with anyone including Hurriyat but when someone breaks law, it becomes our duty to nab him and bring order in the society, Prasad said.
