The Hush Post: After the killing of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir, at least six cops announced their resignations. The Hizbul Mujahideen has allegedly killed the cops. After these killings, six J&K special police officers announced their resignations on social media.
However, the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said no policeman has resigned in the valley.
Reports have appeared in a section of media that some special J&K cops have resigned. But the J&K police have termed these reports as “untrue and motivated”, a statement of MHA read.
“These reports are based on false propaganda by mischievous elements,” the MHA said.
The three slain policemen included a constable Nissar Ahmed and special police officers Firdous Ahmed and Kulwant Singh. The security forces had found their bodies in an orchard near a river, a report said.
Hizbul Mujahideen had warned all Kashmiris working as SPOs to resign
Notably, a Hizbul Mujahideen video had warned all Kashmiri residents working as SPOs to resign from the police.
Kashmir range IG of Police Swayam Prakash Pani termed these killings an act of cowardice. He said: “The militants are desperate as they are feeling the heat from security forces.”
“We have lost three of our brave colleagues in a barbaric terror strike. Our tribute to the three martyred jawans. We will soon bring all the culprits before the law,” Pani said.
The terrorists had kidnapped three policemen on Friday morning from their houses in Batagund and Kapran villages. The terrorists crossed a river in the area and shot them dead, the report said.
A Twitter post of the Hizbul Mujahideen group has taken the responsibility for the cops’ killings. Security agencies also believe that Hizbul terrorists have killed the policemen.
The killing of cops after abducting them from their homes is the first in three decades of militancy in J&K. Earlier, terrorists used to target the policemen on the road or during their duties, the report said.
