If you can hang Afzal Guru, have the courage to revoke AFSPA, Omar Abdullah tells Centre

Jammu, Mar 26: Accusing the Centre of adopting a "different yardstick" for Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday  questioned its "pick and choose" policy over Afzal Guru hanging and revoking of AFSPA

He said AFSPA is not imposed in Naxal violence hit areas. "There are no helicopters shot down in Kashmir, but you have a different yardstick for J&K."

On arrest of Liyaqat Shah, Omar said he was coming to the state to surrender under the state's rehabilitation policy for ex-militants.

"If a man comes to attack a shopping mall, will he come with his wife and children? Tell me. I am hearing for the first time that a militant came to attack holding the hand of his wife and carrying weapons in other hand, as if going for a picnic."

The CM said he has asked the Home Minister that NIA should examine the case.

"We have taken up the issue with Centre, because we know if wrong is done with Liyaqat, others who want to take benefit of surrender policy will hold back."
