Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah termed as “abominable” the killing of an off-duty Border Security Force (BSF) man in Bandipora district.
“What a terrible incident. This is abominable. Heartfelt condolences to the family of Rameez Parrey. Hope the injured recover soon,” Abdullah wrote on micro-blogging website Twitter.
Rameez Ahmad Parrey, who was on leave, was shot dead by suspected militants at his home in Parrey Mohalla Hajin last night.
Four of his family members were wounded in the shooting.
Director General of Police SP Vaid said that 3-4 militants barged inside Parrey’s home and shot him dead.
“3 to 4 militants came to the BSF jawan’s residence and started shooting. He was dragged out of his house and shot,” said Vaid.
