Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists kidnapped a man on Thursday in Hajin town of Bandipura district in north Kashmir. They also attempted to kidnap the father of the man but he escaped with bullet injuries.
This is the second incident of kidnapping by terrorists in as many days in Jammu-Kashmir.
According to reports, the terrorists barged into the home of Abdul Gaffar Bhat just before midnight on Wednesday. They abducted Bhat’s son Manzoor. Bhat was successful in escaping even though the terrorists shot at him.
On 2 April, terrorists abducted a man and seriously injured three other persons in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
“At 10.10 pm, on Monday, four militants believed to be affiliated with the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) barged into Farooq Ahmed Parrey’s house in Hajin area and started firing indiscriminately,” said a police source.
“The militants injured Farooq’s wife, daughter and brother with knives and abducted his son-in-law. Efforts are on to locate him,” the source added.
The son-in-law, Naseer Sheikh, was later found dead with torture marks and two bullet wounds on his body. The injured were shifted to Srinagar.
According to the sources, Farooq’s son Muzzafar Ahmed Parrey had been killed by militants last year.
