Malik dubs militants as ‘Pak-purchased boys’, warns them of dire consequences

JAMMU: Dubbing militants in Kashmir as “Pakistan-purchased boys”, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Wednesday warned them of dire consequences if they do not stop threatening apple growers against selling their produce outside the Valley.

“Some Pakistan-purchased boys are roaming around (in the valley) and threatening to kill the orchardists to stop them from selling their fruit to outside markets,” said Malik, addressing a gathering after laying foundation for state cancer institute here.

“I am telling them to mend their ways as I don’t know whether the fruit dealers will die or not but there is a guarantee that you will soon get killed,” said Malik in a stern warning to terrorists. (AGENCIES)
