CEC said “The people of Kargil and Leh face huge trouble during the opening and closure of Srinagar Leh National Highway. The SHO who is deputed there from the last 10 years have created a mafia and there is a nexus of Corruption which has linked with the higher authorities as well as the Beacon Authorities”.
“This Incident with me has proven that if I would be the victim of his hooliganism than what would be the consequences of a lay man when they speak about justice. The Government should either provide us Justice otherwise they should live us to Pakistan”.

Executive Councilor LAHDC Kargil Advocate Mohammad Amir said that the attempt to attack on the Chief executive Councillor by a Government servant is attack on whole LAHDC and also the humiliation of the people of Kargil. He said “the Government spends crores of money to maintain national Highway so that people get benefited and enjoy easy access to reach the destinations not to earn money for a Government Employee by using muscles”.
