At least five Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) policemen including SPOs and constables on Friday have announced their resignations on social media after the abduction and killing of three of their colleagues by militants.

Policemen have announced their resignations through videos which went viral on social networking sites.

In the videos the policemen are heard saying that they have resigned from their posts and have nothing to do with police from now onwards.

Sources says, the resignation number might increase due to the terror created by the militant group Hizbul Mujahideen.

On Friday morning three policemen were abducted and killed by terrorists in Shopian district of J&K.

Former CM of J&K Mehbooba Mufti condemned the killings and said, “Three more policemen have lost their lives to militant bullets. Outrage, shock & condemnation will be expressed by all of us on expected lines. Unfortunately, it brings no solace to the families of the victims.”

The militant group Hizbul Mujahideen via video had earlier warned security personnel in J&K to resign from their posts within next four days.
