Two different users can link the same issue in the ticket, cause redundant linking.

Most probably the links are not duplicated but the Related link type has the same name for both inward and outward links, so what happened is that you have a link from IMA-619 to your issue and a link from your issue to IMA-619.
JIRA groups all the links based on the link type (and direction) name, so since Related issue link type has the same name/label for both inward and outward links - relates to all the links are grouped in the same section which makes it look like you've got duplicate links.
So the answer is - it's not a bug
