In a latest incident, a J&K Police sub-inspector was abducted and killed by suspected militants in Pulwama district in south Kashmir on Sunday.

The terrorist had claimed to have abducted all these people in a 12-minute video, demanding the release of all relatives of militants in police custody, within three-day deadline. Due to these abductions, J&K Police DGP S P Vaid was removed from the post and several shift in policies were observed.
Considering the severity of the case, a team has been reportedly constituted to investigate the case. Meanwhile, Army’s patrolling party in Shopian district was attacked by the unknown assailants, said police. The officer said that militants open fired at Poterwal village of the south Kashmir district, when the patrolling party was crossing that place. No casualties have been reported.
