Meanwhile in Pulawama in southern Kashmir the body of Aurangzeb, an Army jawan, who was abducted by terrorists when he was heading towards home for Eid, was recovered a few hours later on Thursday (14 June 2018).

Aurangzeb, of 4 Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry, was posted at the 44 Rashtriya Rifles camp at Shadimarg in Shopian. He was abducted at Kalampora in Pulwama.

Editorial comment

When Shujaat Bukhari, my colleague in The Hindu, was silenced and shot dead by terrorists in Srinagar, PM Modi had other priorities- one of them was his fitness video. It’s release coincided with the assassination of a highly respected scribe, who was devoted to the nation and cause of Kashmir, and the simultaneous abduction and murder of a brave Indian soldier . Modi’s fitness video is vulgar display of prosperity at State expenses. It stares in the face of the families of our brave soldiers who are laying down their lives fighting terrorists in J&K and millions living below poverty line. When will Modi rise to the occasion. – Lalit Shastri
