A Border Security Force jawan, Mohammad Ramzan Parray was shot dead by terrorists not while he was on duty but when he was on leave at his house and was unarmed.

According to reports, the 31-year-old Constable Parray, who was posted with the BSF's 73rd battalion had come home to his residence in Bandipora district of north Kashmir a few days back when on Wednesday terrorists attempted to kidnap the jawan. When Parray and his family resisted the abduction attempt, the terrorists opened fire, shooting dead Parray and injuring 4 of his family members, his father, two brothers and an aunt.

Jammu and Kashmir police chief SP Vaid called the killing "barbaric and inhuman", vowing to punish the guilty.

The Border Security Force, which Parray had joined 6 years ago, also tweeted on his death, saying "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 murder of Parray comes days after India gave an example of terror emanating from Pakistan at the United Nations General Assembly by citing the death of Kashmiri army officer Lt Ummer Fayaz, who was also off-duty and unarmed when he was abducted and killed.

Fayaz had been attending a family wedding in Shopian district of south Kashmir in May this year when he was abducted by terrorists. His dead body was found the next day with bullets in his head and abdomen 30 km from his village.
