Handing over Kuthua case to CBI: Omar Abdullah takes jib at CM Mehbooba
Former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday took a jibe at Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti amid reports emanating that Kathua minor rape and murder case will be handed over to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The case is presently being handled by Crime Branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police. Omar said if case is handed over to CBI, “it will be another installment in the price she (Mehbooba) is paying to remain chief minister”.
Taking to social networking site, Twitter, Omar wrote: “The case is being handled by the J&K police. If @MehboobaMufti agrees to hand the case over to the CBI it will be another installment in the price she’s paying to remain CM.”
Earlier, Minister of State in Prime Minister’s Office, Jitednra Singh said that there is no problem to hand over the case to CBI if people don’t have faith in police.
“If people feel that they don’t have faith in the police or crime branch investigation and the case needs to be handed over to the CBI, I don’t think there is any problem,” Union minister Jitendra Singh told media.
