Srinagar: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Rajya Sabha MP DP Vats has said that those pelting stones in Jammu and Kashmir should be shot dead. The Rajya Sabha MP from Bhiwani in Haryana made the remark while reacting to the government’s decision to withdraw cases against stone pelters.
“I read about the withdrawal of cases against stone-pelters. But I think those pelting stones should be shot dead,” said DP Vats while speaking to news agency ANI.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh had last week announced that all stone-pelting cases against youth across Jammu and Kashmir would be withdrawn. He made the announcement during his two-day visit to the State.
Reacting to the same, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had said that the children of the state deserved to live in a positive atmosphere, which was free of all the terror and violence.
