altJehlum post news|Srinagar| Feb 25, 2014| Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Tuesday sought an impartial probe into Lolab encounter wherein army claimed to have killed seven militants whose bodies were handed over the locals for burial. In a telephonic statement to KNS, Mirwaiz said that given the past experience of encounters that were later proved ‘stage managed’, a probe through an independent agency must be ordered into the Lolab encounter. Mirwaiz’s demand comes a day after, the army and police claimed to have killed seven militants in a fierce gun battle that started in Lolab forests in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.“See given the past experience, I mean we have witnessed so many encounters wherein police and army claimed to have killed militants but later they proved to be innocent civilians. Though the

bodies have been handed over to the locals for burial, but the veracity of the encounter itself must be ascertained by some independent agency,” .The Hurriyat (M) chairman said, “People still remember encounter like Pathribal, Machil, Ganderbal, Brakpora and many other incidents where innocent civilians were first abducted and later killed in cold blood.” According to police, 18 RR and Police, killed these militants in an encounter in the jungle area of Dardpora, in the jurisdiction of Police station Lalpora. On Monday (February 24) evening the army said that it laid a cordon around the Madkulla Behak forests of Dardpora village in Lolab after receiving a tip off about the presence militants in the forest.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
