Date: 26 August 2016
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said those hit by bullets or pellets had not gone to fetch milk or toffees. Addressing a press conference here with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Mehbooba said the present situation could not be compared to 2010. She said that people came out on the roads after the July 8 killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani even though the government had imposed a strict curfew. "Had a kid gone to buy a toffee from an army camp? A 15-year-old boy who attacked a police station (in south Kashmir), had he gone to buy milk? Don't compare the two," she said.
