Cops release Hizbul commander's father in bid to secure release of their abducted kin

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Aug 31: Close on the heels of terrorists abducting 11 relatives of policemen in the Kashmir Valley, the Jammu and Kashmir Police on Friday freed Assadullah Naikoo, the father of a Hizbul Mujahideen commander. Assadullah was taken into custody by the police two days ago from Pulwama district. He is the father of Hizbul operational commander Riyaz Naikoo.
Sourcs said the arrest resulted in the kidnapping of 11 relatives of policemen in South Kashmir. In fact, Riyaz Naikoo had issued a statement on social media in which he said that they were forced to act against policemen's families as the cops had arrested a non-combatant relative of a terrorist. Henceforth, the terrorists would follow "an eye for an eye policy", the Hizbul commander declared. "Police has compelled us to follow the course of an eye for an eye and an ear for an ear. Policemen are advised in their own interest to give up their jobs or be prepared to face the worst," he said. The 11 relatives were abducted over the last three days - two of them were kidnapped by terrorists. Among the abducted relatives of cops were two brothers and nine sons. While the security forces are mulling over a strategy to safely rescue the hostages, reports said the terrorists have released some of the abducted relatives of cops after the police freed Riyaz's father.
Also, NDTV reported that not just Riyaz's father, a dozen family members of terrorists have been released in a bid to secure the release of cops' kin. This, however, could not be confirmed.
The terrorists' action was condemned by politicians, with former chief minister Omar Abdullah calling the development "worrisome". "11 abductions! This is a very worrying reflection of the situation in the valley. What's worse is the selective outrage -- people/leaders who are so vocal about alleged security force excesses are silent about these abductions," Omar tweeted.
