Jammu and Kashmir, April 6: In a heinous act of crime in the valley, Lashkar-e-Taiba militants decapitated a 24-year-old shepherd and according to reports threw his body outside Hajin in North Kashmir's Bandipora district.

Manzoor and his father Abdul Gaffar Bhat were kidnapped by militants from their Bonkhan Mohalla, Hajin area, late on Wednesday night.

The police also said that the gunmen had after barging into Butt's home beaten up the inmates before dragging the father-son duo and taking them along. While the father managed to escape with bullet injuries, Ahmad's headless body was found in an orchard. This is the second case of kidnapping in the district's Hajin area in the past 48 hours. Earlier, body of Naseer Ahmed Parray (37), who was abducted on Monday evening, was recovered from the outskirts of the town the next day.

Police said local terrorist Mohommad Saleem Parrey is believed to have played a major role in the killing of the local innocent youth.
