They said that the soldiers thrashed the inmates including women and arrested 28 persons. The locals said that 30-year-old lecturer, Shabbir Ahmad Mongu, was among the arrested people.
They said that Shabbir Ahmad was dragged out and beaten up ruthlessly before the forces’ personnel arrested him. Later, the Indian forces asked the family to take dead body of Shabbir Ahmad, they added.
