Srinagar: Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Friday tweeted a photograph and a video, showing a Kashmiri youth tied with an army vehicle in Gundipora Beerwah area of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district.
While expressing shock over the incident, Omar Abdullah wrote: “Here’s the video as well. A warning can be heard saying stone pelters will meet this fate. This requires an urgent inquiry & follow up NOW!!” Omar while expressing his outrage adds: “This young man was TIED to the front of an army jeep to make sure no stones were thrown at the jeep? This is just so shocking!!!! #Kashmir.
Apparently targeting Indian news channels for showing only one side of the coin, former Chief Minister wrote: “I understand the outrage the CRPF video generated. I’m also outraged that the video of the youth on the jeep won’t generate the same anger. Let’s see channels going ballistic & having discussions with outraged panelists now. Probably not since “Kashmir is ours” hell with Kashmiris.”
While responding to the queries raised by some followers, Omar Abdullah wrote:
“You are going to use that video (youth showing CRPF men heckling) to justify this action. So we should expect no better from the army than from stone pelters?” (CNS)
