Srinagar, Feb 23 (UNI) The Army here today said the Dodipora incident was a conspiracy to tarnish and malign its image and an effort to stall and destablise the ongoing peace process.
''The entire incident and its blow up is a deliberate attempt by the vested interest to tarnish and malign the image and good name of the Army,'' General Officer in Commanding (GOC) XV Corps Lt Gen S S Dhillon told journalists here.
He said the hype created about the incident was also an attempt to stall and destabilise the ongoing dialogue and peace process.
''The vested interests are using the incident as an excuse to stall and retard the ongoing peace talks which is absolutely wrong,'' Gen Dhillon said.
