Prime News, National (Shopian, Jammu), September 21:- Three policemen have been kidnapped and killed in south Kashmir early on Friday morning sources have told NDTV. Terrorists had kidnapped four policemen and one of them was freed with the “help of villagers”, home ministry officials said. The terrorists have allegedly warned the policemen and asked them to resign, say police sources.
The terrorists barged into the houses of the policemen – three of them are Special Police Officers – in Kapran village and dragged them out, said the police.
“Terrorist are under pressure as they are not able to execute anything big. Protest politics and stone-pelting has come down. So they are taking out their frustration by targeting policemen in their houses,” said a home ministry official.
Earlier this week, Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists had put out videos in which they had said policemen should either post their resignations online or prepare to be killed. The home ministry expressed worry about repercussions as the videos floated around in several villages.
The video, in which a man is heard speaking in Kashmiri, surfaced a day after an Army jawan was shot dead by the Hizbul Mujahideen. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
