The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday recovered the body of 26-year-old Muntazir Parray, who was allegedly abducted by unidentified gunmen on Monday night from his in-laws’ home in Hajin area of North Kashmir’s Bandipora district, Global News Service reported.

The body was found five kilometres from the house. “The body bears visible bullet marks,” Greater Kashmir quoted a police official as saying. “It will be handed over to the next of his kin after post-mortem.”

The gunmen, who reportedly belonged to the Lashkar-e-Taiba, kidnapped Parray
around 10.10 pm, the police said. Three of his relatives, including his wife and mother-in-law, were injured while trying to resist them.

Parray’s brother-in-law was killed in 2017. The headless body of Muzzafar Ahmad Parray was fished out of the Jhelum river on August 27. He had been missing for two days before his body was discovered. A month before he was killed, Muzaffar Parray had been released from police custody. He had been arrested after a photo that showed him with two assault rifles had surfaced on social media.
