Srinagar: A sarcastic former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said it was time for India to sort out Pakistan's Balochistan problem since the government was already doing "such a good job" in Jammu and Kashmir with fresh six killings.

"Six protesters dead in Kashmir in 24 hours (since Monday) but WTH (what the hell) let's go sort out Balochistan since we are doing such a good job in Jammu and Kashmir at the moment," Abdullah tweeted.

The National Conference leader was referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi supporting "freedom" for Balochistan and the parts of Kashmir occupied by Pakistan. Modi, in his Independence Day speech on Monday, referred to alleged atrocities committed by Pakistan security forces in these regions.

Abdullah's tweet came after four protesters were killed on Tuesday morning in central Kashmir's Beerwah -- his assembly constituency. One more civilian was shot dead at Anantnag in south Kashmir.

A Class 10 student was killed on Monday evening in a clash with police and paramilitary troopers in Srinagar.

With the latest deaths, the toll mounted to 65 in the Kashmir unrest that was triggered by the July 8 killing of a popular rebel commander, Burhan Wani, in a shootout with security forces.
