SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir Assembly witnessed a major uproar today with the opposition parties National Conference and Congress staging a walkout over the Handwara killings.

Members of the National Conference and Congress have been reportedly accusing the PDP-BJP government of failing to table the inquiry report into the Handwara killings in the Upper House.

As soon as the proceeding of the assembly started, the Opposition legislators stood up from their seats and demanded the government’s response on the killing of youth in Bemina.

Handwara witnessed massive clashes between the police and locals on April 12 after the news of a girl being molested by an army soldier spread.

Five people were killed in firing by the security forces during the protests.

However, the girl denied the molestation allegation in a controversial video shot inside a police station in which she said that she had been under duress.
