Class XI Student’s Murder Deeply Disturbing In Kashmir: Omar Abdullah


National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah on Saturday described the killing of a youth by suspected militants in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district as deeply disturbing, saying there can be no justification for such an act.

“The cold-blooded murder of an 11th standard student by the Hizbul Mujahideen terror outfit is deeply disturbing. There can be no justification for this act & should force those who sympathise with these outfits to question how these murders make Kashmir a better, freer place,” Omar posted on Twitter.

The former J&K chief minister was reacting to the abduction and killing of Nadeem Manzoor – reportedly a Class XI student – by the militants on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday at Niklora in Pulwama, police had said.
