Abductions worrying reflection of situation, says Omar

Srinagar, Aug 31: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief Minister and National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah said that the abductions of eleven relatives of policemen was a “very worrying reflection of situation in the valley”.

“11 abductions! This is a very worrying reflection of the situation in the valley,” tweeted Omar.

He also took a dig at the separatist camp for “being silent” on the issue.

“What’s worse is the selective outrage – people/leaders who are so vocal about alleged security force excesses are silent about these abductions,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, former chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said that families of both militants and government forces shouldn’t become casualties and made to suffer for something they have little control over.

Taking to a social networking site twitter Mehbooba wrote: “Militants and forces victimising each other’s families is highly condemnable and marks a new low in our situation. Families shouldn’t become casualties and made to suffer for something they have little control over.”
