In a major embarrassment for security forces in Jammu and Kashmir, the encounter in which a top LeT militant from Pakistan was said to have been killed was allegedly fake and the victim was a civilian.

A Special Police Officer (SPO) and an Army Jawan who allegedly staged the killing of an unidentified mentally-challenged civilian from Rajouri as part of a conspiracy to gain personal benefits were arrested and booked for murder, police said.

Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said the two men - SPO Noor Hussain and Territorial Army Jawan Abdul Majeed - are in police custody and charged with 302 (RPC).

"I assure that law will follow its own course," he said in Srinagar.

In Poonch, SSP Ashkoor Wani told reporters that SPO Noor Hussain and the Jawan Abdul Majeed were arrested today for carrying out the fake encounter by murdering a civilian and calling him divisional commander of Lashker-e-Taiba Abu Usman.

"A case has been registered against the SPO and Jawan of 156 Battalion of Territorial Army under section 302 Ranbir Panel Code for conspiring to murder a civilian and misleading security forces and police," he said.

Col A. Arora, spokesman, Nagrota-based 16 Corps, said: "Army has ordered an independent inquiry and prompt and stern action will be taken if any individual is found guilty".

Brutes like them must be hanged to death; it is degenerates in the Security Forces who bring disrepute to the whole of Indian Security Forces of brutality against the innocent citizens of Kashmir!!
