Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday condemned the killings of seven civilians in forces’ action in southern Pulwama district.

In a series of tweets, Omar Abdullah hit out the governor administration, saying it has failed to focus on the security of the people.

“The administration of Governor Malik has one task & one task only - to focus on the security of the people of J&K & restore peace to a troubled valley. Sadly it appears that’s the only thing the administration is not doing. Publicity campaigns & full page ads don’t bring peace,” tweeted Abdullah.

In another tweet, Abdullah said it was a “horrible day”, saying that the protests around encounter sites had become a norm and that there was a need to handle them in a better way.

PDP president Mehbooba Mufti while condemning the killings said that no probe could bring back the dead civilians.

She also criticised the governor administration for “failing to secure civilian lives.”
