Srinagar, Apr 3 (PTI) Police today recovered the body of a man who was kidnapped by militants in Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir, an official spokesman said.

“The body of Naseer Ahmed Parray alias Muntazir, who was abducted yesterday by militants at Hajin, has been recovered,” the spokesman said.

He said Lashkar-e-Taiba was behind the killing of Naseer, who was abducted from his in-laws house last night. Three of his relatives, including two women, were injured by the militants.

The militants barged into house of one Farooq Ahmad Parray last night and opened firing on the inmates.

“The terrorists used knives to cause grievous injuries to wife, daughter and brother of Farooq,” the spokesman said.

The injured persons were shifted to a hospital here for treatment.

The spokesman said the militants had killed Farooq’s son last year.

“Muzzafar Ahmad Parrey was killed ruthlessly by terrorists last summer. He was first decapitated and then his body was thrown into the river,” he added.
