Attempt on Geelani’s life reprehensible
“The attempt on the life of SAR Geelani on the night of February 8 outside the house of his lawyer, Nandita Haksar, in condemnable is strongest possible words. He is reported to have gone there to meet Ms. Haksar in connection with the ongoing case in the Supreme Court as a sequel of appeal by the prosecution against his acquittal by the High Court.
There are people who want special treatment for some outside the scope of law; there are people who would like to inflict punishment if in the eyes of law a person is not guilty. These are dangerous portents. We must condemn such attempts strongly.” -- Y. P. Chhibbar Ph.D., General Secretary, February 9, 2005
