Srinagar: A day after a non-local from Chennai was allegedly killed in a stone-pelting incident in Narbal area of Budgam district, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah lamented that stone-pleters in Kashmir are being glorified.

“We’ve killed a tourist by throwing stones at the vehicle he was travelling in. Let’s try and wrap our heads around the fact that we stoned a tourist, a guest, to death while we glorify these stone pelters & their methods,” Omar Abdullah tweeted

This young man from Chennai died in my constituency & while I don’t support these goons, their methods or their ideology I’m deeply, deeply sorry that this happened at all & that too in an area I’ve been proud to represent since 2014.
