This is just so shocking!!!! #Kashmir,” Mr Abdullah, who is the working president of main opposition in the state (NC), wrote on micro-blogging site. “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!!,” he tweeted with the same video attached. Meanwhile, reacting to a tweet which tried to justify the act by referring to another video where CRPF jawans were slapped by Kashmiri youth, Mr Abdullah said, ''So we should expect no better from the Army than from stone pelters.'' “Ma'am seriously?
You are going to use that video to justify this action. So we should expect no better from the Army than from stone pelters,” he asked. “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,” Mr Abdullah added. (UNI)
