Srinagar, July 28: A Special Police Officer (SPO) was abducted by suspected militants in Tral village of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district during last night. The SPO’s family urged militants to release him without harm.
A police officer told GNS that a group of at least three suspected militants barged inside the residential house of the SPO namely Mudasir Ahmad Lone, a resident of Chankatar village of Tral late last night and abducted him.
A hunt has been launched to trace out the abducted policeman, he said.
Lone, according to reports was posted as cook in Reshipora Awantipora.
Meanwhile, the family of the SPO urged militants to forgive and release him from their custody for Allah’s sake.
In an emotional appeal that has gone viral on social networking websites, the mother of the SPO surrounded by her three daughters, said: “He is my only son among four children. He (Mudasir) had to come back home (to quit the job) and was to declare it this Friday in the mosque. However, he got engaged in some work and didn’t get time.”
She appealed to the militants to have mercy on her and her three daughters and set Mudasir free for Allah’s sake.
“You are also my own children. I request you to kindly set him free and he will quit the job and apologize for all his mistakes. If you hear of any complaint in future you can kill all of us,” she said. (GNS)
