Srinagar: A day after two youths were killed in Budgam district, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that such incidents “vitiate the poll atmosphere”.

Omar took to Twitter today and condemned the killings and said that such incidents do not have a place in the improving security situation of the state where militancy incidents are at a record low level.

He also said that the incident has vitiated the poll atmosphere of the state which is still recovering from the massive destruction caused by floods that took place last month.

The CM added that he has also spoken to Union Home Minister Arun Jaitley about the two killings which were “avoidable”.

Faisal Yusuf Bhat and Mehrajuddin Dar were killed while Shaker Bhat and Zahid Naqash were injured on Monday evening after 3 Rashtriya Rifles fired at their car in Budgam district.

The Army later said that the youths refused to stop the car at two checkpoints after which Army personnel opened fire at the third as they attempted to speed away.

SSP Srinagar, Amit Kumar, later said that the youths had no links with militants.

Assembly elections are scheduled to be held in five phases between November 25 and December 20.

The counting of votes will take place on December 23.
