SRINAGAR: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah welcomed the Machil fake encounter verdict and called it a watershed moment.
Hailing the verdict of the General Court Martial, Omar said on twitter, "This is a watershed moment. No one in Kashmir ever believed that justice would be done in such cases. Faith in institutions disappeared. "I hope that we never see such #Machil fake encounter type of incidents ever again and let this serve as a warning to those tempted to try."
