New Delhi , May 12 : After the Jammu and Kashmir Police established that the Hizbul Mujahideen was responsible for killing Army Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz in Kashmir, defence expert P.K. Sehgal on Friday said the cruelty displayed that such terror outfits would open fire at anyone irrespective of whether the victim was a Kashmiri or a non Kashmiri.
“People of Jammu and Kashmir must realise that Hizbul Mujahideen and similar outfits are their enemies. They perpetrate such cruelties without considering if the people are Kashmiri or non Kashmiri,” Sehgal told ANI.
Earlier, Rajputana Rifles officer Fayaz was kidnapped from a relative’s house during a wedding ceremony, and was shot dead the same night.
Fayaz had been commissioned into the Army’s Rajputana Rifles regiment five months ago and had taken leave to visit big family in Kashmir.
Police said they recovered two empty INSAS rifle cartridge cases used for the crime.
