Terrorists barged into Md Ramzan Parray's house and shot him after a foiled bid to kidnap him

SRINAGAR:  A young, unarmed jawan of the Border Security Force was shot dead by terrorists on Wednesday evening when he and his family resisted their attempt to kidnap him. The terrorists opened fire on his family too, injuring four of them including a woman relative. Constable Mohammad Ramzan Parray, 31, died on the spot.

The BSF constable was deployed with the border-guarding force's 73rd battalion and had come home in Bandipora district on a vacation a few days earlier. Md Ramzan had joined the force, which is primarily deployed along India's border with Pakistan and Bangladesh, six years ago.

Jammu and Kashmir police chief SP Vaid called the killing "barbaric and inhuman" and vowed to punish the guilty.The killing comes just a few days after India had cited the cold-blooded murder of an army officer from Kashmir, Lt Ummer Fayaz, at the United Nations General Assembly as an example of the kind of terrorism emanating from Pakistan. "This is a true picture. It portrays a harsh and tragic reality," an Indian diplomat had told the UN body, holding the 22-year-old officer's photograph.

Like Constable Ramzan, Lt Fayaz too was off-duty and unarmed when he was kidnapped from a family wedding in south Kashmir's Shopian district in May this year.

Four family members of Mohammad Ramzan Parray are also injured in firing by the terrorists

The army officer's family had hoped the terrorists would let him go and didn't report the abduction to the police. The army officer's body was found the next day around 30 km from his village, with bullets in his head and abdomen.

When the terrorists barged into Constable Md Ramzan's house on Wednesday evening to take him away, he and his family resisted. According to reports, they dragged him out of the house and when it became clear that they wouldn't be able to take him away, they opened fire.

Nitish Kumar, who heads the police in north Kashmir, tweeted that four of Md Ramzan's family members were also "critically injured".Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah also expressed his condolences on Twitter. He condemned the incident calling it "abominable".
