Shopian: Three policemen who were kidnapped by terrorists from Shopian in South Kashmir were found dead on Friday morning.
The terrorists on Thursday went to the houses of the policemen and dragged them out. The martyred officers included two Special Police Officers and a constable.
The bullet-ridden bodies of the cops, Firdous Ahmad Kuchey, Kuldeep Singh and Nisar Ahmad Dhobi were found on Friday morning.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti took to Twitter and attacked the central government over the incident.
“Three more policemen have lost their lives to militant bullets. Outrage, shock and condemnation will be expressed by all of us on expected lines. Unfortunately, it brings no solace to the families of the victims. Clearly, with the rise in kidnapping of police personnel and their families, Centre’s muscular policy is not working at all. Dialogue, the only way forward seems to be a distant dream for now,” she wrote.
