Mohammad Yousuf Bhat, who is an eyewitness to the custodial death of National Conference worker Haji Mohammad Yousuf, trashed some local media reports which had quoted him as saying that he will unravel the true story about the case. "I have already made a statement about the issue before the commission of inquiry.
If there is anything more to say, I will say it at the time of filing nomination papers. What has been reported (in local media) is not correct," he said.
This is the second major setback for NC in Ganderbal, Omar's assembly constituency, as veteran leader Sheikh Ghulam Mohammad Saloora quit the party few months ago.
