Srinagar: Pro-Pakistan militant outfit Al-Nasireen on Tuesday threatened to kill Qaiser Lone, MLA from Lolab and a nephew of slain minister Mushtaq Ahmed Lone. Spokesman of the outfit Faisal Nasir, in a faxed statement said ''Al-Nasireen will rest only after finishing of Qaiser for his anti-movement activities''. Claiming that Qaiser''s uncle Mohiuddin Lone was killed on Saturday for his ''anti-movement'' activities, the outfit said he had been funding a local news agency and a newspaper and using them for propaganda. The spokesman warned the owners of the two news organisations to ''stop such activities''. The outfit also asked two relatives of the Qaiser - Nazir and Manzoor - to promise at the coming Friday congregation at Sogam, Kupwara, that they would not follow the footsteps of the two slain uncle''s of the MLA.
