Srinagar, April 3

The body of the civilian kidnapped by militants on Monday night was found at Hajin in Bandipora.

Militants had kidnapped the man and injured three of his relatives in Bandipora district, police said on Tuesday.

Suspected militants of Lashkar-e-Toiba barged into the house of one Farooq Ahmad Parray at Hajin on Monday night and opened fire on inmates, a police spokesman said.

“The terrorists used knives to cause grievous injuries to wife, daughter and brother of Farooq,” he said. The militants also kidnapped Muntazir Ahmad Parrey, son-in-law of the house owner from there, the spokesman said.

“Efforts are on by the police to trace out the kidnapped man,” he added. The injured have been shifted to hospital here.

The spokesman said the militants had killed Farooq Ahmad’s son last year. “Muzzafar Ahmad Parrey was killed ruthlessly by terrorists last summer. He was first decapitated and then the body was thrown into the river,” he added. With PTI
