Jammu: After two children were killed in an
accidental explosion of a shell in Srinagar last night, Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah expressed his outrage
at the incident through a post on Twitter.

"God please please put an end to all this death &
destruction. How many more graveyards do we have to fill
before someone says ENOUGH (sic)", Omar said in a post on the
social networking website.

A 10-year-old boy and his 8-year-old sister were killed
and three other members of their family were critically
injured when a shell accidentally exploded at their house in
Srinagar last night.

The two children had found the unexploded shell from the
debris of a house that was razed by security forces during a
gun battle with Jaish-e-Mohammad militants in Malroo area near
Srinagar in October last year.

Replying to the Tweets he received from his followers on
the website, Omar said, "It doesn`t matter who the hell the
grenade belonged to, all that matters is that 2 young lives
have been snuffed out much before their time (sic)".

The chief minister also tweeted: "doesn`t it bother you
how in every tragedy you are conditioned to blame the security
forces. What about LeT that created encounter".
He further said "I`m conditioned to call a spade a spade.
Try it some time, it`s liberating".

In reply to another Tweet, Omar said, "I`m well aware of
that but unless your CM is God himself/herself there are
somethings that are beyond any human`s control".
