first_imgSrinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik waded into controversy on Sunday by asking terrorists to target corrupt politicians who have “looted the entire wealth” of the state rather than innocent people and security personnel. “These boys who have picked up guns are killing their own people, they are killing PSOs (personal security officer) and SPOs (special police officers). Why are you killing them? Kill those who have looted the wealth of Kashmir. Have you killed any of them?” Malik said, speaking at an event in Kargil.

They have one house in Srinagar, one in Delhi, Dubai, one in London and elsewhere. They are shareholders in big hotels,” he said. Reacting strongly to the statement, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah attacked the governor. “This man, ostensibly a responsible man occupying a constitutional position, tells militants to kill politicians perceived to be corrupt. Perhaps the man should find out about his own reputation in Delhi these days before sanctioning unlawful killings and kangaroo courts,” he tweeted.last_img
