Shopian: A bullet ridden dead-body has been retrieved from the orchards of Dangam in Shopian. The body has been identified to be that of the Panch Nissar Ahmad Bhat of Khonmoh, Pampore, and has bullet marks over it.

Earlier, an unverified clip had surfaced where purported militants claim that they have ‘killed the Panch’ from Khonmoh who has been missing since August 19.

In the audio clip purportedly released by militants, the makers claimed to have killed the Panch adding that they would “not return the body due to the pandemic” and that “no resignations will be accepted from anyone now”.

The Panch, Nissar Ahmad Bhat of Khonmoh, was missing after he reportedly went to Shopian on August 19.

Aftah Aalim, the younger brother of Nisar told Free Press Kashmir that the family had filed a report with police, stating that he left for Shopian on August 19, and stopped responding to calls after that.
