Congress gives a religious spin on J&K Dy SP's arrest

Two days after the arrest of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) Deputy Superintendent of Police (Dy SP) with Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists, Congress had attempted to give it a religious spin. Taking to Twitter, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury alleged that if the name of Davinder Singh would have been Davinder Khan, 'the reaction of troll regiment of RSS would have been more strident and vociferous.'

Giving Pakistan a benefit of doubt, he has also questioned the country's involvement in orchestrating the Pulwama terror attack on Feb 14, in which Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) had claimed responsibility. He has asked 'who were the real culprits behind the gruesome Pulwama incident'.

Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia also raised questions over Davinder Singh's arrest saying that it is more than just an intelligence failure. "It raises some serious questions on operations of the police and the security situation in J&K. How could he operate under wraps for so long?" he said in a tweet.
