केरल: पति पर पत्नी को सांप से डसवाकर मारने का आरोप

केरल के डीजीपी लोकनाथ बेहरा ने कहा, यह एक अलग तरह का मामला है, जिसकी जांच वैज्ञानिक तरीके से कराई जाएगी, यह टेस्ट राज्य से बाहर कराया जाएगा
Jammu: Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday visited the family of rifleman Aurangzeb who was abducted and killed by militants in Jammu and Kashmir on 15 June. 

Sitharaman arrived in Jammu earlier in the day and flew to the Mendhar area of Rajouri district where she met the bereaved family. Army chief General Bipin Rawat had also visited the family on Monday.

Accompanied by senior Army officers, the minister went to the remote hamlet of Salani in the border district of Poonch to express her condolences to the family of slain soldier Aurangzeb, officials said.

“I have come to spend some time with the family of the martyr and the message I am carrying back is that the martyred soldier stands out as an inspiration for the entire country,” the minister told mediapersons in Jammu.

Aurangzeb was brutally killed in Pulwama district in the Kashmir Valley. He was on way to join his family on the occasion of Eid when the militants intercepted the private vehicle in which the soldier was travelling to Shopian town, from where he would take another vehicle for Poonch.

 

A video released by the militant group that abducted Aurangzeb showed him bravely acknowledging that he was a soldier of the Indian Army and had participated in anti-militancy operations in south Kashmir.

Aurangzeb, who was posted with 44 Rashtriya Rifles, was abducted by terrorists from South Kashmir on 14 June and killed him the same day. The terrorists intercepted the vehicle as it approached Kalampora and abducted the jawan. His bullet-riddled body was found at Gussu village, about 10 km from Kalampora, in Pulwama district.

Earlier, Aurangzeb’s family had made an emotional appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Army and the Jammu and Kashmir government to eliminate militancy from the State and avenge his death.
