The body of a missing BJP leader has been recovered by security forces in Indian-administered Kashmir. Kashmir police say Nisar Ahmed Bhat, a member of the panchayat, went missing ten days ago and his body was found in an apple orchard on Friday. The security forces then raided Kilora village in Sofia district. Police said four people were killed and another surrendered. This information came from the broadcast media NDTV report.
Kashmir police said they recovered the body of BJP leader Nisar Ahmed Bhat from an apple orchard on Friday morning and obtained specific information about the location of those involved in the incident. Within a few hours, the village of Sopian was raided.
Kashmir Inspector General of Police Vijay Kumar said that two of the four people killed in the operation were involved in the kidnapping and murder of Nisar Bhat. Members of the army and paramilitary forces also joined the operation along with the police.
Police claimed that a suspect surrendered during the operation. Police said that action will be taken against him as per law.
It should be noted that some armed rebel groups in Kashmir are directly agitating for independence. Some are in favor of making Kashmir a Pakistan. Throughout history, the freedom movement has been gradually Islamized. The Hizbul Mujahideen is now the most active of the rebel groups there. However, Indian authorities did not separate the Kashmir liberation movement from various terrorist activities. Indian forces are accused of killing several insurgents as well as civilians under the guise of suspected terrorists.
