‘Man Killed in Kud Operation Belongs to Bemina’



The man, suspected as a militant, has been identified as one from Bemina area of Srinagar.

A news report quoting family of the deceased published by a Srinagar based newspaper was identified as 32 yeard old Sheikh Tanveer Hussain, a resident of Ibrahim Colony, Bemina.

“Police and CRPF were frisking all the Jammu-bound vehicles at Kral Nallah area in Kud when they stopped an SRTC bus and during its checking an unidentified suspected militant opened fire at them,” DGP K Rajendra Kumar had said.

Two women and a child were injured in the operation. One of the women succumbed to her injuries on way to the hospital.

The pictures which went viral on social networking sites showed the bloodied body of the man between the aisle and a seat. “An AK-47 rifle and a pistol were recovered from the dead man,” police had said.

The news report said that Tanveer left his home on Monday morning and was on way to Amritsar. “He was scheduled to treat his injured shoulder.” He had gone there earlier also, family members are quoted.

The report further said that one of Ibrahim’s six brothers was a militant and had died in early 90s. “He had served a prison term on militancy charges and was released in 2003. He had left studies midway.” “His family said that police had called them last month asking about Ibrahim, who had gone outside the state,” the re3port added.

“On his arrival we called the police informing them that he was home and does he need to come to the police station. But they said it was not needed,” said one of his brothers.

Reports said that the body of Tanveer will reach his home around 12.

Meanwhile, all types of “private airborne activity” within a one kilometre radius from any defence installation in Jammu and Kashmir has been banned for a period of 60 days. This comes in the wake of suspected militant attack in Jammu region.
