Killing of 11th standard student in Shopian deeply disturbing: Omar Abdullah

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday termed as “deeply disturbing” the killing of an 11th standard student in Shopian district of south Kashmir.

In a tweet, Omar said that the “cold blooded murder” of Nadeem Manzoor of Safnagri Shopian by the “Hizb ul Mujahideen” 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,” said Omar.

A purported video emerged on social media on Friday showing militants firing a volley of bullets on Nadeem.

In the video, the gunmen could be heard asking Nadeem why he tipped forces about two militants -- Idrees Ahmad (Chota Abrar) of Safnagri and Amir Amin (Abu Shoban) of Awneera -- who were killed in a gunfight with forces in Safnagri earlier this month.
