Hours after being kidnapped, the bullet-riddled body of a Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) police constable was found this morning in Pariwan, Kulgam.
Last night, terrorists had barged into the home of 27-year-old Javaid Ahmad Dar in Vehil, Shopian, before fleeing with him.
Security forces later launched an operation to find him.
Today, purported photos of a shirtless Dar were found circulating on social media.
Another Kashmir cop abducted, killed
Last month saw the cold-blooded murders of Bukhari, Aurangzeb
Bukhari was shot dead along with his two security guards in the high-security Press Colony area moments before Iftar.
Meanwhile, Aurangzeb was visiting his home in Poonch to celebrate Eid with his family when terrorists abducted him. His bullet-ridden body was found later with injuries on head and neck.
During ceasefire, the Valley saw record violence
During Ramzan, the government declared a one-month ceasefire in Kashmir, the first in 17 years.
But it had an opposite effect than intended. From 18 terror incidents during April 17-May 17, it shot up to more than 50 in the next 30 days.
The number of grenade attacks (20) was the highest in a month in two years.
The government resumed military operations mid-June.
