SRINAGAR, Dec 29: Special Investigation Team of Police formed regarding Hyderpora encounter on Wednesday said that its investigation is still going on and warned political leaders of “appropriate penal action for speculative statements” for calling the investigation “Concocted Cover-up Story”, “Ornamental Probe”, “Clean Chit to Killers”, “Fairy Tale of Police” etc.

“Today (29.12.2021) SIT (Special Investigation Team) came across several posts on media from some political leaders and family members wherein they have cast doubts upon the evidence obtained by SIT so far.
