Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah has said that the frequency of security forces personnel getting killed in militant attacks in the state was both tragic and worrying.
The regularity with which we have to tweet condolences for martyred security force personnel in J&K these days is both tragic & worrying, Omar wrote on a micro-blogging site.
Omar, who is the working president of the opposition National Conference, said the government should be alarmed by the fact that two attacks have taken place along the highway in south Kashmir since yesterday.
The realisation that both these attacks took place on the major highways of South Kashmir should have the powers that be sitting up in alarm, he said on Twitter.
