In an apparent reference to the murder of ‘Rising Kashmir’ editor Shujaat Bukhari, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Chaudhary Lal Singh on Friday, 22 June, asked the journalists in Kashmir to draw the line and mend their ways.
Addressing a press conference in Jammu on Friday, he said Kashmir media has created “a wrong narrative regarding the Kathua rape-and-murder case,” reports said.
“They (journalists) must draw a line so that brotherhood in the state remains intact and we also join the journey of development. It’s better to control yourself before the situation gets worse,” Singh was reported as saying.
Singh had started a campaign across the Jammu region, demanding a CBI probe into the Kathua rape-and-murder case after he was made to resign as forest minister along with industries minister Chander Prakash Ganga in April for participating in a rally in support of the eight men arrested in the case, reported PTI.
