Condemning the killing of a youth in an Army operation in Kupwara district, Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said the incident could have been avoided if a "suggestion" made by him at a meeting of the Unified Headquarters had been implemented.
However, he did not elaborate as to what the suggestion was.
"How can one not condemn the death of 21-year-old Manzoor at the hands of the Army late last night. Another needless death in a bloody Kashmir," Omar posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Omar said he was trying to understand the circumstances in which the youth was killed but was not getting enough answers to his many questions.
"Have been trying to understand the circumstances. Lots of questions but not enough answers at the moment," he said.
Omar said he was upset with the knowledge that the incident could have been avoided if a suggestion he had made at the Unified Headquarters, the top security forum which includes heads of all security agencies active in the state, had been implemented.
"I am even more upset with the knowledge that if a suggestion of mine, made in the Unified Command (sic), could have avoided this incident," he posted.
The chief minister has off late started using Twitter to convey his views.
