A Jammu and Kashmir policeman bludgeoned a colleague with a stone and threw the body into a river for allegedly assaulting him sexually, officers said on Thursday.
Police registered a case of murder against Aijaz Ahmad, a special police officer (SPO) posted in Srinagar, for killing constable Sameer Kumar.
Kumar allegedly sodomised Ahmad in the car they were travelling in north Kashmir’s Handwara on May 14 to drop a relative of the constable.
Police said a search is on to trace the body in Handwara’s Pohru river.
Ahmed allegedly admitted to killing Kumar after his disappearance. He was the main suspect as the two were friends and often seen together.
