Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said here on Tuesday that all the local boys who displayed ISIS flags in recent days in Srinagar have been identified, but none of them has been found to be involved in militancy.
Speaking to media on the sidelines of the Police Commemoration Day, Mr. Abdullah said: “All the boys who displayed the ISIS flags in the city have been identified and cases have been registered against them.”
“None of them has been found involved in militancy so far. Now what are the reasons for them to display such flags would be established by the inquiry going on in these cases.”
A media flutter was created here during the last few months because some masked youths displayed the flags of the outfit ISIS that is active in Iraq and Syria.
It should be noted that a similar alert in reference to Goa was rubbished by the state’s Chief Minister last week. Goa CM Manohar Parrikar said that there was no specific terror alert for the state and media reports quoting a top NSG official indicating the same were “incorrect”.
