  1. Shocked to learn from @neelakantha that @spvaid --the DG of J&K actually suspended the SP who killed Burhan wani in an encounter--all because @MehboobaMufti was upset at killing of Burhan. A DG playing doormat to jehadi politicians-- Is this what IPS training is all about?

Detailed Analysis: In a series of tweet over Jammu and Kashmir, senior journalist Madhu Kishwar came under the ire of J&K police when the Kashmir police termed her claim as misleading And said “ More than shocked to read concoted information being shared by a senior journalist like you @madhukishwar .No SP has been suspended. Kindly check before sharing such information”.

She referred Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani’s encounter, she alleged that SP Vaid actually suspended the Jammu and Kashmir superintendent of police for killing Wani in 2016, as Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was upset over the encounter.

She mentioned in the tweet that she learnt from Sushil Pandit the above information. However her facts were made wrong by the J&K Police.

DGP SP Vaid also retweeted J&K police tweet, supporting to the J&K police, but just behaving like any other political leaders she stuck to her claims and tweeted another message

Another tweet she said “In that very tweet, I named the source of my information, namely very responsible & credible person – Sushil Pndit @neelkantha of @RootsInKashmir. I don’t think he would give me false information. Let him clarify the position”
