When asked if they know why the mob attacked them or who they were, Aftab said, "We don't know who they were".

Senior PDP leader and minister in Mehbooba's cabinet Naeem Akhtar while speaking on recent killing of civilians in firing by security forces in Shopian alleged some TV Channels have unleashed a vicious campaign against Kashmir and Kashmiris, which he said is only adding fuel to the fire.

"If the situation deteriorates, the footprint of security forces will increase".

She also called upon the mainstream political parties to reach out to the people for restoration of peace. "Now it is the government which has to see what measures are needed to be taken on ground", Sagar said. Aftab and Amjad told television channels that they registered a complaint just to ensure that such incidents don't take place in the future.

"Saying that self-rule does not seek resolution of Kashmir issue outside the Indian constitution but within the Indian constitution. The Shimla agreement, the Lahore declaration and the Agra summit are testimony to the fact that wars take India Pakistan nowhere but dialogue brings them closer to peace and normalcy".

Speaking to news agency ANI, CS Rao, IGP South Range, Haryana said, " Two incidents happened in Mahendragarh yesterday.2 Kashmiri students went to offer prayers in mosque & thereafter to market.

"The meeting has ended without any outcome", they added. Subsequently, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had ordered an inquiry into the incident. A case has been registered under IPC Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation). "The cops after questioning, detained one of our fellow students and lodged him at Habib Gunj Police Station".

On Monday, Mehbooba had said that FIR against army will not decrease its moral and there could be some black sheep in the force as well.

In an indication that panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir may get deferred once again, most participants at an all-party meeting convened by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday told the state government that the situation at present, especially in the Valley, was not congenial for conducting such a massive electoral exercise.

"Barring some pockets, the situation is overall conducive for the elections", BJP state president Sat Sharma said.
