Police officer's lynching 'marks new low' in J&K: Rahul

Additionally in order to enhance the investigation procedure, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been constituted to look into the case.

Five persons have been arrested and 12 others who were part of the lynch mob have been identified so far.

A mob lynched a senior police officer in this summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, triggering outrage and forcing Chief Minister Mehmooba Mufti to dub the crime a "murder of trust". Khaliq has been asked to report to the police headquarters.

Separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq also expressed profound sadness over the incident and said that mob violence and public lynching is outside the parameters of muslim values and religion. "It's a very sad and unfortunate incident", the DGP said. "They killed an innocent, a Tahjud Guzar (one who prays during the nights)", said one of the sisters-in-law of the slain officer.

Pandit was reportedly clicking pictures of the crowd outside the grand mosque to which some people objected.

A deputy superintendent of Indian police was stripped naked and stoned to death by a mob outside the historic Jamia Masjid in a freakish incident which drew all-round condemnation, including from Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

Danish Ahmad Mir, a resident of Eidgah, is one among the three youth who got injured when the DSP Mohammad Ayoub Pandith fired at them during the Shab-e-Qadr outside the Jamia Masjid Srinagar on being attacked by a mob. He was on access control duty in the Jamia Masjid but was mistaken as a informer after he allegedly started recording things on his cell phone. "Then they paraded him naked, and he was beaten to death".

Since the officer was not in uniform, he was identified only hours later when his family called his mobile phone. "He was attacked by more than 200 people", a top police officer told Mirror. The government of Kashmir, for reasons of political expediency, has given the anti-India agitation a long rope and despite the presence of security forces the animosity of the locals against the government has increased.

Pandith was an M. Com and an LLB and had joined the police force in 1990.
