Srinagar: Former chief ministers, Omar Abdulla of National Conference and Mehbooba Mufti of PDP Friday tweeted on the abductions in south Kashmir.
“11 abductions! This is a very worrying reflection of the situation in the valley. What’s worse is the selective outrage – people/leaders who are so vocal about alleged security force excesses are silent about these abductions,” tweeted Omar Abdullah.
In her tweet, Mehbooba condemned victimization of families of both militants and forces.
“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,” Mehbooba tweeted.
Pertinently, police said that ‘some abductions’ have taken place in south Kashmir at the hands of militants.
They include close relatives of policemen.
Police have also arrested at least four relatives of militants in south Kashmir including father of Hizb Commander Riaz Naiko.
