Jammu, May 20: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and national conference patron Dr Farooq Abdullah, today appealed to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan singh to initiate a judicial inquiry into the Samba encounter in which six people were killed on may 11.

Dr Abdullah who today visited samba district to participate in the 10th day ceremony of late Hoshiar Singh and his wife late Sashi Bala, who also got killed in fierce gun battle between security forces and the militants, demanded that high level probe should ordered as the residents of Samba have expressed apprehensions that the killing of Hoshiar Singh and his wife was a well planned murder by forces inimical to peace who hatched a conspiracy to liquidate late Hoshiar Singh.

In his communiqui to the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and the National Security Advisor, Dr Abdullah also urged that the judicial enquiry should also go into the circumstances leading to the samba incident.

''This incident should be an eye opener for the state government while the government should facilitate thorough investigation into the issue so that there was no element of suspicion and the apprehensions of the people are addressed,'' Dr Abdullah said.
