Meanwhile, pursuing credible leads of the presence of LeT terrorists in Kupwara, police, along with 41 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and 98 Bn CRPF, on Friday launched a cordon and search operation in Juggiyal, Turshan Mohalla, Hyhama areas of the district.

Seemingly taking a cue from brutalities perpetuated by the dreaded Islamic State, Lashkar-e-Taiba militants beheaded a 24-year-old shepherd and threw his headless body in the outskirts of Hajin area in North Kashmir's Bandipora district.

"At 10.10 pm, on Monday, four militants believed to be affiliated with the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) barged into Farooq Ahmed Parrey's house in Hajin area and started firing indiscriminately", police sources had told IANS. This is the second such incident in the past few days where civilians have been targeted by militants in the Kashmir Valley. The outfit has not reacted to the charge, so far. Manzoor Ahmad Bhat (25), son of Abdul Gaffar Bhat, was found headless at an orchard falling in Bonmohalla Hajin today morning.

A case has been registered and an investigation is under way.

Police said before abducting father-son duo, terrorists thrashed the family members black-and-blue without caring about the dignity of inmates.

The police said a local LeT's cadre is behind the killing of Butt after his kidnapping.

The police suspect militant Mohammad Saleem Parrey was involved in the killing.
