SIMI threatens to kill me: Sangharsh Samiti leader

October 26th, 2008 - 12:38 am ICT by IANS  

Amarnath ShrineJammu, Oct 25 (IANS) Shri Amarnath Sangharsh Samiti leader Leela Karan Sharma Saturday said the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) has threatened to kill him. A hand-written letter from the Meerut unit of SIMI says his role in the agitation for land allotment to the Amarnath shrine trust earlier this year was deplorable and he would be punished, he said.

“It is the result of terrorists’ desperation,” Sharma told reporters here.

“I am not scared,” he said and wanted police to take action.

The Samiti, a combination of over 30 groups, had led a two-month agitation from July 1 to pressurise the Jammu and Kashmir government to withdraw its order cancelling land allotment for the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board.
