Seventeen-year-old youths were kidnapped from a village in Shopian and militants killed in southern Kashmir quarter of Pulwama on Thursday night. The police said a young bullet body was found in the village of Pulwama in Niklora.
The statement issued by the police in Jammu and Kashmir marked the dead youth behind Nade Manzoor, the inhabitants of the village of Safanagri in Shopian. The statement said the case was registered and the investigation began.
While killing was a "brutal terrorist act," police officers said the civilian was abducted on Thursday and Friday night by militants and was later killed.
Family members of the youth said Thursday night that a group of armed groups joined when Nadeem was not at home.
"When he came back, we told him that someone was looking for him, he went out again and was kidnapped, and later found out that he was killed and his body found," Nadeem's cousin said to an Indian expression.
Parents said Nadee was not involved in any suspicious activity. "We do not know who killed him, but we're sure he's innocent," said his cousin. "If the militants killed him, they should tell us why they killed him."
Hadeem recently appeared on a class XI exam.
Safanagri Village in Shopian is located near the Niklora area of Pulwam, where the body of Nadee was found.
Earlier this month, a meeting between militants and security forces took place in Safanagri, and two fighters who were linked to the Hizbul Mujahideen were killed in the prosecution. On Thursday, soon after Nadeem's body was found, the police began to search the village to fight militants. No arrests were made.
