The three injured family members, Rafeeqa, Neelofar and Hilal Ahmad Parrey, are still undergoing treatment at a hospital in Srinagar. "Local LeT terrorist Muhammad Saleem Parray is believed to have played a major role in the killing of the youth", it said in a statement here. This is the second such incident in the past few days where civilians have been targeted by militants in the Kashmir Valley.
Abdullah said: "Any shutdown call or call for peaceful protests for Manzoor Ahmed whose decapitated body was found after he'd been abducted and killed by militants? No? On completion of required formalities, the body was handed over to the family for performing last rites", a police spokesman said.
He identified foreign militants of LeT as Abu Muslim, Hubaib, Khalid, Abu Hamza and Haider.
