Legitimate doubts loom over Rambagh encounter: Mehbooba Mufti

SRINAGAR: A day after three terrorists, including a top commander of "The Resistance Front (TRF)" were killed, former Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said "legitimate doubts are looming over its authenticity".

She said the official version is "far from the truth and is not in line with the ground realities."

"After yesterday's alleged encounter at Rambagh legitimate doubts are looming over its authenticity. As per reports & witnesses it seems that the firing was one sided. Again the official version is far from the truth and is not in line with ground realities as seen in Shopian, HMT & Hyderpora," she tweeted.

On Wednesday evening the TRF commander Mehran Yaseen Shalla, who was allegedly involved in series of killing of civilians in Srinagar was killed along with two of his associates in a brief shooting in Rambagh.

Police had said a gunfight ensued after a police team signaled a Santro car to stop at the Rambagh locality.
