Jammu and Kashmir Police has identified two terrorists, associated with terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), involved in the killing of former Special Police Officer Fayaz Ahmed, his wife and daughter at their home in Pulwama district, said Inspector General (IGP) of Kashmir Police Kashmir Vijay Kumar on Tuesday. Addressing the media here, the IGP said the police team is tracking both the terrorists and will neutralize them soon.
“We have identified a local and a Pakistani militant of JeM and we are tracking them in connection with the killing of former Jammu and Kashmir Police SPO Fayaz Ahmad and his wife and daughter in the Tral area in Pulwama. We will neutralise them soon,” he said.
Terrorists shot dead Ahmed and his wife at their home at Hariparigam village in Pulwama, the Kashmir Police told on Sunday. Their daughter, who also sustained bullet injuries, succumbed to her injuries later in a hospital on Monday morning.
Speaking about the twin blasts that took place at Jammu Air Force Station on Sunday, Kumar said, “It (Drone attack) is a technological threat. We will be responding to it with technology. We had a meeting at 15 Core Headquarters regarding the same yesterday.” He informed that another drone was spotted over Dal Lake earlier today which was seized by the police and an FIR has been lodged into the matter.
“Further investigation is underway. The terrorists have shown how barbaric they are. In the past few days, they have been targetting police officers. Neither they want peace in the region nor they want the development of the region. They just want to disrupt the positive talks that are going on. That is why they are targetting civilians and police,” he added.
