Terrorists release J&K cop abducted in Pulwama

The Jammu and Kashmir policeman who was abducted by some unidentified terrorists in the Pulwama district of South Kashmir returned home on Saturday night after being released by terrorists, said IGP (Kashmir) SP Pani.

Earlier on Saturday, it was reported that the policeman identified as Shakeel Ahmad Lone was abducted in Chan Kitar Tral of Pulwama district. He is a Special Police Officer in the J&K Police and employed as a cook.

Speaking to reporters, J&K DGP SP Vaid had said his family has claimed that he had gone to visit a relative.

The abduction of Lone came after nearly a week when the bullet-riddled body of a police constable, who was abducted by a group of terrorists linked to Hizbul Mujahideen from his residence in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district, was found by the security forces.

Constable Saleem Shah, who was on leave, was abducted from his residence in Mutalhama area of Kulgam in south Kashmir. Shah’s body was recovered from a nursery near Redwani Payeen village.

His killing was severely condemned by the J&K Police and top political leaders of the state.

Former J&K chief minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah too condemned Shah’s brutal killing. ”The murder of Mohd Saleem is barbaric & unacceptable. I condemn his killing in the strongest possible terms. May his soul rest in peace & may his family find strength at this difficult time,” Abdullah tweeted.
