CPI demands probe into passenger list leak

Press Trust of India

Posted: Mar 31, 2005 at 1431 hrs IST

Imputing that militants were 'flaunting the list to intimidate passengers', the CPI Jammu and Kashmir unit on Thursday demanded a probe into the reported leak of the confidential list of persons cleared for the inaugural run of the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus.

"The militants, who have called for a boycott of the bus, are flaunting the list to intimidate the passengers," it alleged.

"It is serious and the government must order a probe into it," CPI Jammu Regional Council Secretary Kanwal Dev said.

CPI National Council member and senior leader from the Kashmir valley, Abdul Rehman Tukroo asked the government to probe "how such a confidential list had leaked in the first place".

"The government must enhance security of the passengers travelling on the bus in the wake of threats by militants to cause harm to them," said the two leaders, who are participating in the 19th Congress of CPI which began on Wednesday.

They, however, welcomed the starting of the bus service, saying "it will help increase people-to-people contact and relatives on either side (of the two Kashmir) who have not met for years will get a chance to see each other".
