On Tuesday, the terror group Hizbul Mujahideen had warned security personnel in Jammu and Kashmir to resign from their posts. The threat came through a video in which a man was heard speaking in Kashmiri language and saying, “state police, especially SPOs, to resign from their posts within the next four days.”
According to the sources, three SPOs and a police constable were kidnapped but one of them was set free by terrorists.
The deceased were identified as Kuldeep Singh, Firdous Ahmad Kuchey and Nisar Ahmad Dhobi.
The killings come just three weeks after policemen and their family members were kidnapped by terrorists in south Kashmir but were set free after the Jammu and Kashmir police released around a dozen family members of terrorists, including the father of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Riaz Naikoo.
