Srinagar: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has strongly condemned the killing of Manzoor Ahmad in an Army ambush in Chogal of Handwara town.
Regretting the killing, Omar in a statement said that the gruesome incident could have been avoided if a “suggestion” made by him at a meeting of the Unified Headquarters had been implemented. “How can one not condemn the death of Manzoor at the hands of the Army late last night? Another needless death in a bloody Kashmir,” Abdullah said on Twitter.
Omar said that he was trying to understand the circumstances in which the youth was killed, but was not getting enough answers to his many questions.
“Have been trying to understand the circumstances, lots of questions but not enough answers at the moment,” he said.
The chief minister said that he was upset with the knowledge that the incident could have been avoided if a suggestion he had made at the Unified Headquarters, the top security forum which includes heads of all security agencies active in the state, had been implemented. “I am even more upset with the knowledge that if a suggestion of mine, made in the Unified Command (sic), could have avoided this incident,” he posted.
