Srinagar: Stating that it would be premature to suggest any Kashmir link to Wednesday’s blast in Delhi, Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah has, however, admitted that the state government was working on various leads in tandem with National Investigating Agency. “I am not in a position to suggest any links. But various leads have been shared with us and we are in a process to share certain leads with NIA. We are investigating the leads,” said Omar. He was talking to reporters after offering fateha prayers and laying wreath at the mausoleum of National Conference founder and his grandfather, Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah at Hazratbal on his death anniversary. Admitting of having some leads on Delhi blasts, the chief minister said the state government was in the process of sharing intelligence inputs with NIA and that the clues were being investigated thoroughly. Condemning the blast, Omar said, “The nation (India) demands answers. It is the responsibility of those who are tasked to protect the country. They must provide answers as to who was behind this act. They should also suggest ways to prevent such attacks in future.” Replying to a query about the recently announced amnesty for the stone pelters, Omar said any youth arrested till the day general amnesty was announced would come under the policy. “There were no releases as all (1200 persons) of them were already released on bail. None of them was in custody. Now their cases stand withdrawn,” he said. The chief minister asserted that the number of youth who are still under custody was less than 100. “Wrong impressions are being created that jails are filled with youngsters. That is not true.”
