With Kitchloo at the helm how can Police Department be trusted to file a factual report on Kishtwar Violence

With National Conference MLA Sajjad Kitchloo occupying the hot seat in the office of MOS Home guessing the contents of the final report of the one man Commission constituted to probe the incidents of Kishtwar violence is not going to be a herculean task.

Sajjad Ahmed KitchlooAccording to the 160 page interim report of the commission the commission is expected to file the final report in the next two months time and is presently awaiting the replies of the state police department, central and state Intelligence agencies.

With Kitchloo at the helm of affairs and incharge of police department how can one expect  the police department to file a factual report even if it contains some adverse remarks. It is highly unlikely that the police officers at the helm would risk filing  a negative report against the sitting minister.

Secondly, if at all some adverse entries/ uncomforting facts come to life in the coming days and  the police department bring them on record the chances are that the same report would be edited /altered to suit the political interest of the ruling alliance.

The hasty decision to re-induct the National Conference MLA has already caused lot of heartburn among the alliance partners as the congress has accused the National Conference of not discussing the matter in the coordination committtee panel.

Some of the ministers of the Congress party are of the opinion that the contents of the report have not be discussed in the cabinet despite the fact that the same has been made available to the General Administration department. In the coming days as Omar Abdullah prepares to celebrate completion of five years of rule in the state the stigma of re-inducting Kitchloo would continue to haunt him.
