His remark comes a day after a 12-year-old boy, who was taken hostage, was killed in a gunfight in Bandipora district’s Mir Mohalla area along with two other militants.

The police however, accused the militants of shooting the boy dead.

Taking to Twitter, Omar said: “I wish there was as much outrage in Kashmir against militants when they take a young boy hostage as there is when security forces are accused of human rights violations.

“Selective outrage is cowardly and hypocritical.”
