Police: We Only Helped Take Body to Graveyard

Thank People for Cooperation

Srinagar: J&K Police in a statement issued here this evening said that the situation across Kashmir valley remained peaceful and no any untoward incident was reported.

“Pertinently, some vested interests tried to spread baseless rumours about forcible burial of SAS Geelani by police. Such baseless reports which are as a part of false propaganda to incite violence are totally refuted by the Police. As a matter of fact, Police instead facilitated in bringing the dead-body from house to graveyard as there were apprehensions of miscreants taking undue advantage of the situation. The relatives of the deceased participated in the burial,” the police spokesperson said.

Quoting IGP Kashmir, the police spokesperson thanked and appreciated the co-operation of the general public in maintaining the peaceful situation throughout the valley which defeated the ill designs of inimical elements that are hell-bent to disturb the otherwise peaceful atmosphere in the valley.

“It is also pertinent to mention that similar restrictions and internet shutdown will continue tomorrow. We shall review the situation tomorrow afternoon and take further course of action,” he said.

The police spokesperson urged people not to pay heed to the rumours being spread by the “anti-national elements especially across the border” who are trying to take undue advantage of the situation and to disturb the peaceful atmosphere in valley.
