Just In: “It is an act of cowardice” says J&K DGP on BSF Jawan Parray’s killing

Jammu & Kashmir DGP SP Vaid said ” It is an act of cowardice and we will see that they (militants) are tracked down and taken to task”. “They want to silence the people who target terrorists and who share information with security forces” He added. The DGP also said that the attackers are confirmed to be from Lashkar-e-Taiba by the intelligence forces. BSF jawan Mohammad Ramzan Parray, 23, was gunned down on Wednesday night by four terrorists who barged into the jawan’s house injuring four other family members.
Parray, who had joined BSF a few years ago and was posted in Baramulla town with the 73 battalion, was on leave for the past 20 days. According to SP Bandipora Zulfikar Azad, the terrorists first tried to abduct the BSF jawan, but started shooting when they faced resistance from the jawan’s family members. The terrorists fled the spot only when cops guarding a nearby house opened fire to scare them, sources said.
