Another man’s body found in Kashmir’s Baramulla

Srinagar, Sep 15 (IANS) A man’s body was found in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Tuesday, a day after three bullet-riddled bodies of three youth were found at an orchard there.

“The body of 32-year-old Manzoor Ahmad Reshi of Gonipora Kunzar in Baramulla district was recovered today (Tuesday) morning near a nullah (stream) in Kunzar,” a senior police official told IANS here.

The official said the dead man was reportedly of unsound mind.

It was not immediately clearly how the man died.

Police confirmed that two of the three youth whose bullet-riddled bodies were found on Monday in an apple orchard in Baramulla district were militants.

“Two of the three slain youths have been identified as Amir Ahmad Reshi of Hardshiva (Sopore) and Ashiq Ahmad Wani of Lolipora (Pattan), who were militants belonging to Qayoom Najar-led Lashkar-e-Islami group, a rebel group of the Hizbul Mujahideen.

“The triple murders were a result of a rivalry between two militant groups. Investigations are on in the case,” a senior police officer said.

No separatist group has given a call for protest or shutdown in Kashmir over the triple murders.
