SRINAGAR: The body of a police constable, who was abducted apparently by Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) terrorists from his residence in Kulgam district, has been found, officials said on Saturday.
Constable Saleem Shah, who was on leave, was abducted from his residence in Mutalhama area of Kulgam in south Kashmir on Friday night, a police spokesperson said. He said Shah’s body was recovered from a nursery near Redwani Payeen village.
The body bore severe injury marks, indicating that he was brutally tortured by the terrorists, the spokesperson said.
He said Shah had joined the services in 2016 and after completing his basic training, was posted to DPL Pulwama.
The slain cop is survived by aged parents, two brothers and one sister and was the lone bread-earner for his family, the official said.
He said a case has been registered and efforts were underway to nab the killers.
Initial investigation has indicated that it was the handiwork of proscribed terror outfit HM, the spokesman said, adding, “we condemn such gruesome terror act and assure that the culprits shall be brought to justice.”
