Outgoing DIG North Kashmir Nitish Kumar on Thursday blamed Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militant outfit for the killing of off-duty Border Security Force (BSF) man Rameez Ahmad Parrey in Hajin area of Bandipora district.
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.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah has termed the killing as “abominable”.
“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.
