A Kashmiri youth on Wednesday apologised for the dangerous stunt he performed — lying flat on a track as a train chugs over him. Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah also said he should be let off after counselling.Realising the “stupidity” of his stunt after he was arrested, the youth on Wednesday wrote on social media: “I apologise to all the people who commented or shared my stupid stunt.”I feel ashamed and I wouldn’t repeat it. I want to say to the police to forgive me for my stupid stunt and free me from prison.
“The youth, who belongs to south Kashmir’s Bijbehara area, was arrested on Tuesday after the video of the stunt went viral two days back. A police officer said: “We have arrested him. His act may incite other youths to perform this dangerous stunt.”Pleading for a pardon for the youth, Omar Abdullah tweeted: “Arresting him isn’t the solution. He should be counselled and let off with a stern warning. Our prisons are too full of young men as it is and stupidity isn’t a crime”.–IANS
Arresting him isn’t the solution. He should be counselled & let off with a stern warning. Our prisons are too full of young men as it is & stupidity isn’t a crime. https://t.co/FSpMhZZJaZ
