Reacting to the mob frenzy and killing of a cop in Bulandshahr, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that the ruling party in Uttar Pradesh eluogises the killers of policemen as heroes while in Kashmir they are dubbed as Millitants.

“In Kashmir people who kill cops & snatch weapons are called Millitants. In UP the ruling party will fete & eulogize these killers as heroes,” tweeted Omar while re-posting an NDTV story which detailed the killing of Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh by a mob protesting over alleged cow slaughter.

The mob was allegedly led by Yogesh Raj, an activist of the right wing group Bajrang Dal, who had complained to the police about cow slaughter after carcasses were found scattered in a forest, reported NDTV.
