Jammu and Kashmir Police have cracked the blind murder case of a Territorial Army jawan, who was found dead on November 25 a day after his abduction.
Police on Wednesday blamed Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Toiba militants for the abduction and killing of an army man in south Kashmir's Shopian district recently and said an Over Ground Worker (OGW) of the militants has been arrested and three of the four militants involved in the killing have been identified. It may be called that Sepoy Irfan Ahmad Dar was killed and his body was recovered from the Wuthmula village on November 25.
Police said on Wednesday that investigation conducted so far has revealed that militants involving Saddam Padder, Bilal Mohand and one newly recruited unidentified militant, along with arrested Muzamil hatched a criminal conspiracy to kill the Irfan Dar.
"On November 24, the accused Muzamil went to the native village of Irfan and took him to Wuthmula where the above mentioned militants were already present in a nearby orchard".
The sympathiser, identified only as Muzamil, has been arrested, a police spokesperson said. A police officer said: "Whether he (Dar) had links with militants is a matter of investigation".
"On the basis of evidence, the entire chain of conspiracy has been busted. The look-out for other three militants is on and necessary legal proceedings are in progress to complete the investigation", said the police.
