The bullet-riddled bodies of three abducted cops were recovered from south Kashmir’s Shopian district on Friday.
The martyrs have been identified as Firdous Ahmad Kuchay, Kulwant Singh and Nisar Ahmad.
Three cops and the brother of a policeman were abducted by the terrorists during raids at their homes in Batagund and Kapren villages of Shopian last night.
Soon after their abduction, police had launched a manhunt to trace them.
The bullet riddled bodies of three cops were recovered from Dangam village of Shopian today morning.
Police sources said they were taken to Lamni-Wangam village adjacent to Kapran in Shopian district where they were shot dead. Their bullet riddled bodies were recovered by locals on Friday morning.
Watch Video :
Last week terrorists released 11 family members of policemen with a warning.
At least eight people whose relatives worked in Jammu and Kashmir Police were abducted.
Hizbul Mujahideen commander Riyaz Naikoo had purportedly claimed responsibility for the abductions in a 12-minute video, issuing a three-day deadline for the release of all relatives of terrorists who were in police custody.
The August 30 abductions happened after the NIA arrested the second son of globally-wanted terrorist Syed Salahuddin, leader of the Hizbul Mujahideen group.
Salahuddin’s son was arrested on charges of receiving secret funds.
We have lost 3 of our brave colleagues in a barbaric terror strike. Our tribute to the 3 martyred Jawans Nisar Ahmad, Firdous Kuchay & Kulwant Singh. We condemn this inhuman act and assure that all the culprits shall be dealt under law. @JmuKmrPolice
