Missing constable murdered, was a sodomiser: Police


Jammu and Kashmir police on Thursday revealed that the cop who is missing since a fortnight was murdered by a fellow SPO Aijaz Ahmad of Budgam. Police further said that the slain was an alcoholic and a sodomiser.

Addrsseing a presser in Police Control Room Srinagar, DIG Central Kashmir Range G H Bhat said that the constable had sodomised Aijaz when the duo was on a trip to Pahalgam.

“Constable Sameer along with an SPO, who happens to be his friend, drove to Pahalgam for a night out via Batwara.”

Bhat said that the duo stopped at Batwara and purchased three bottles of wine. “At Pahalgam, Sameer sexually assaulted his friend Aijaz,” Bhat said and termed it a case of sodomy.

Next, Bhat added, Sameer and Aijaz accompanied former’s uncle to Police Lines Kupwara (KPL). Sameer’s uncle is a constable in JKP and was transferred to Kupwara from Pahalgam and was scheduled to join duties the same day at Police Lines Kupwara.

“The trio drove to Kupwara where Sameer’s uncle was dropped at KPL,” the DIG said.

On way back, Aijaz stopped on the banks of river Puhroo in Kupwara itself and got down from his car. “Aijaz picked up a stone and hit Sameer on the head who was sitting on the front seat,” DIG said.

“It was in a fit of revenge that Aijaz hit Sameer’s head,” he added. “Aijaz thought Sameer might exploit the sexual assault incident which would have shamed him.” Aijaz died on the spot, Bhat informed.

“Aijaz then drove further more and disposed off the body in the river which is yet to be retrieved,” he said. JKP even used the services of Marcos – special Navy divers to fish out the body. “We have seized the car, stone and the soap by which the car was washed after the murder,” the Central Kashmir police chief said. “Aijaz is in custody.”
