Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin on Friday denied Jammu and Kashmir Police’s statement blaming three members of his outfit for Lt Ummer Fayaz’s killing. “Our militants are not involved in the murder of Lt Ummer Fayaz. Such a killing is condemnable,” he said in a statement to a local news agency.

He blamed “Indian agencies” for murdering the officer “from a pro-freedom family’’. He added that militants were being blamed for the murder to shield the “real face of the Indian agencies’’. Salahuddin claimed that India was trying to create groups like ISIS to defame militants. “There is no role of al-Qaeda, ISIS and Taliban in Kashmir’s freedom struggle.”

The police has released posters of three alleged Hizb men along with photographs and asked people to provide information about those responsible for Fayaz’s killing.

            Since this kil is not being liked by the local kashmiris, who all along supported the terrorists and stone throwers, this group is trying to reduce any damage . Now at least, the locals should know what these anti-nationals / terrorists agenda is. Why no m crowds at this funeral ????? Where are the no good local kashmiris gone ????? Next time it could be anyone among them. These terrorists know no religion. Their role has been established. Get some common sense at least now, you local kashmiris.
