A constable of Jammu and Kashmir police was allegedly kidnapped by militants in Shopian late Thursday. Constable Javaid Ahmad Dar, a resident of Vehil Shopian, was reportedly abducted from a local medical shop in Shopian. As per reports, four Hizbul militants took him along to an unknown destination. Dar was a Personal Security Officer (PSO) of former Shopian SSP Shailendra Kumar.
According to reports, militants came and left in a Santro car. The incident comes less than a month after Army jawan Aurangzeb was abducted and later killed by terrorists in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. Aurangzeb’s bullet-ridden body was recovered from Gussu village in Pulwama district hours after he was abducted by terrorists on his way home for Eid celebrations. He was shot in his head and neck, police had said.
