Terrorists killed J&K police officer Farooq Ahmad Mir in Pulwama on June 18. According to recent reports, Pakistan carried out the attack in an attempt to instil fear of terrorists among the locals, as well as to send a message that such attacks can be directed at anyone.
When it comes to the brutal killing of a J&K police officer, it happened on the night of June 17 and 18 when Sub-Inspector Farooq Ahmad Mir left his home to water his paddy fields in Samboora village in Pulwama.
His family members went out looking for him after he didn’t return until late and discovered his bullet-riddled body in a paddy field. They immediately alerted the J&K police, who responded quickly. The body was recovered by the police, who discovered a bullet wound on his chest and two bullet cartridges on the field.
Notably, as Army chiefs, commanding officers, Jammu and Kashmir police officers, and other military officials paid their respects to the late Farooq Ahmad in a wreath-laying ceremony, footage from his final journey shows his distraught family sobbing after receiving his mortal remains. Later, his body would be laid to rest.
