Jammu, March 4 (ANI): President of People's Democratic Party (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti has hailed Union Home Minister P. Chidambram for responding positively to the sentiments of people and demanded that after the arrest of the BSF Commandant, he should take this to the logical conclusion.

Speaking to media during a welcome ceremony to the leaders, who recently joined PDP, Mufti said: " I think, you know, Home minister has responded positively to the sentiments of the people and he has initiated a process. And we hope that it is taken to it's logical conclusion and the person who is involved is tried in court of law," said Mehbooa Mufti.

Demanding that the accused be tried in an open court instead of Court Martial, Ms. Mufti said, " People should know, you know finally the person has got punishment for what he has done. Whatever punishment he gets it should come to the knowledge of the people. So I would prefer that Home Minister takes it to the logical conclusion by allowing the normal courts to try this person rather than going for Court Martial, because we really don't know what happens to the Court Martials."
