Srinagar, Dec 5(ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said that security of all the Separatists leaders in Kashmir Valley would be revived and strengthened following yesterdays attack on Hurriyat chief Mirwaiz Umer Farooq's aide Fazl Haque Qureshi.
Addressing the media after attending a conference organized by the Sheri Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) in Srinagar, Omar Abdullah condemned the attack and said it was an attempt to derail the peace process in the State.
"It is the most unfortunate incident and a clear attempt to derail the peace process. Qureshi was one of the separatist leaders, who wanted to find a peaceful solution to Kashmir problem at the negotiating table," Omar said.
When asked as to who could be behind the incident, Omar said, "Things will unfold in due course of investigations. Surely, it is the handiwork of those who do not want peace to return to the State. This is the work of enemies of peace."
The Kashmir Valley is said to be quite tense in the wake of the attack.
Latest reports said Qureshi has undergone a three-hour operation on his skull, and doctors are hopeful about him making a turn around. (ANI)
