Omar Abdullah hits out at Mehbooba Mufti after militants decamp with rifles in Srinagar


SRINAGAR: Opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Friday asked chief minister Mehbooba Mufti to “acknowledge failings of her administration” and stop looking at New Delhi and Islamabad after militants decamped with three rifles from a police post in Srinagar last night.

“Looted from the police at Dalgate, the heart of Srinagar’s uptown & at the center of our area of tourist accommodation. At some point the CM needs to stop looking at New Delhi & Islamabad to bail her out & start acknowledging the failings of her administration,” Omar wrote on Twitter after a picture of the looted rifles went viral on social media.

In a second such incident within two days in Srinagar, suspected militants yesterday looted three rifles from a police post in the tourist hub of Dalgate.

Earlier, a rifle was snatched by suspected militants outside Kashmir University at Hazratbal.
