The death is believed to be a suspected terror attack as the body was found close to his car. Reports also suggested that Irfan Dar, son of Ghulam Mohammad Dar, was a resident of Sensen village of Shopian district. He was in the Engineering Regiment of the Indian Army. Dar was on leave for 10 days and was visiting home. According to reports, the body was found in an orchard area in Wothmula Nad area of Keegam by locals who immediately informed the police. A statement by Shopian SP Ambarkar Shriram Dinkar to CNN-News 18 said, “We got to know about the incident at 10 am. He is a Kashmiri. He was found 2-3 km from his house. He was on vacation. We suspect terror activity…. He was suspected to have been kidnapped by militants. His car was also found near the spot.”

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has strongly condemned the killing and tweeted: “Strongly condemn the brutal killing of Irfan Ahmed,a brave Territorial Army soldier at Shopian. Such heinous acts will not weaken our resolve to establish peace and normalcy in the valley.”

22-year-old Lieutenant Umer Fayaz was also killed which is suspected to be a dastardly terrorist attack earlier this year. Martyred Lieutenant was picked up from his house by masked men the previous night of the morning his body was found three kilometres from his house. The men who abducted him had threatened the family members to keep quiet about the incident. Body marks on Fayaz’s body suggested that he resisted the terrorists when they were trying to kidnap him.
Umer Fayaz’s death had sparked furore among the local residents and they demanded that justice be met by punishing the people responsible for the torture and murder of the soldier.
