Terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir stormed the home of a BSF constable Rameez Parrey, who was on leave, and shot him dead while also inflicting gunshot wounds on four of his family members. The gruesome incident took place in Hajjan in north Kashmir.
The 30-year-old Parrey belonged to the 73rd battalion of the BSF.
A tweet posted by the BSF said, “Prahari Pariwar stands by the family of one of our member Constable Md Ramzan who was cowardly killed by terrorists today.He was on leave.”

The militants, after forcing their way into the house in Parrey Mohalla, fired indiscriminately at the family.
The jawan died on the spot. Four of his family members — his father, two brothers and an aunt — suffered gunshot wounds, PTI reported quoting local police.
The condition of the jawan’s aunt was stated to be serious, while that of the three others was stable.
The Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police, S P Vaid, termed the incident as “barbaric and inhumane” and said the guilty would be punished.
Parrey served the BSF for six years.
On May 9 this year, an Army officer from Kashmir, Lieutenant Umer Fayaz, was abducted and shot dead by militants in Shopian district where he had gone to attend the wedding of a relative.
Parrey’s killing comes just days after India cited the cold-blooded murder of an army officer from Kashmir, Lt Ummer Fayaz, at the United Nations General Assembly as an example of the kind of terrorism emanating from Pakistan.
Just like Parrey, Lt Fayaz too was murdered while on holiday with his family.
