New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on Monday said his government would initiate the gradual process of scrapping the Armed Forces Special Powers Act from the state.

His comments came two days after twin terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir killed three security personnel.

"There are certain reservations as far as the Defence Ministry and some army officials are concerned, but we will try to start the gradual process (of scrapping AFSPA)," Mufti told the state Assembly.

"Until you completely revoke AFSPA, make your people accountable," he said.

Referring to his recent discussion with GOC-in-C Northern Command Lt Gen DS Hooda, Mufti said, "I told him that you have to have a standard procedure."
