Early Times Report
Kulgam, Sept 17: In South Kashmir's Kulgam district, suspected militants shot dead a local army soldier who had come home to mourn his son's death.
As per reports, militants barged inside the residence of Mukhtar Ahmad Malik in Shurat village and shot him from close range. He was immediately evacuated to District Hospital Kulgam but the doctors declared him brought dead.
Malik was a counter-insurgent before he joined the Territorial Army, reports added. He was part of 162 Territorial Army unit stationed in South Kashmir.
Malik had come home few days back to mourn the death of his son. "His son Shariq Ahmad Malik suffered critical injuries in a road weeks ago. He later succumbed to his injuries at Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences Soura Srinagar," a resident told Early Times. This is not for the first time militants have attacked unarmed soldiers when they were at home on leave. Earlier an army officer was killed by militants. Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz Parry, from Kulgam was posted in Akhnoor and had gone to Shopian to attend the marriage function of a relative. Militants abducted the officer and in the morning villagers found his dead body in a nearby orchard.
Recently in July, bullet-riddled body of a trainee police constable, who was kidnapped by militants from his Matalhama village, and was found at Qaimoh.
Before his kidnapping, Muhammad Salim Shah was promoted as constable and was undergoing training in Police Training School in Kathua, the police said. "The trainee constable had come home on leave from police training school in Kathua", police said.
A few days before the Matalhama incident, the police had recovered the body of Constable Javaid Ahmad after he was abducted by militants from his home in the Shopian district. Javaid Ahmad Dar was abducted from a local medical shop in Shopian on July 5.
