SRINAGAR — Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and PDP President Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that legitimate doubts are looming over the authenticity of alleged Rambagh encounter where according to Police three militants were killed on Wednesday evening.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Mufti said, “After yesterday’s alleged encounter at Rambagh, legitimate doubts are looming over its authenticity. As per reports & witnesses, it seems that the firing was one sided.”

“Again the official version, far from truth, is not in line with ground realities as seen in Shopian, HMT & Hyderpora,” Mehbooba said in a tweet.
