SRINAGAR, Jan 8 (Agencies): An audio clip of a purported conversation between two Hizbul Mujahideen militants has gone viral here in which a commander of the outfit tells his cadres to pour acid into the eyes of those who contest the upcoming Panchayat elections in Kashmir.

In the purported clip, Hizb commander Riyaz Naikoo tells another militant of the outfit, Sameer Tiger, that they should not threaten or kill anyone contesting the polls but pour “strong acid — Sulphuric Acid or Hydrochloric acid” into the their eyes.

“Over the past 28 years, we have been threatening and killing the candidates but it has not deterred them. Normally, those people stand for elections who are considered useless by their families.

“They (families) want to get them (candidates) killed so that they get Rs 5 lakh ex gratia and job on compassionate grounds,” Naikoo is heard saying in the audio clip.
