A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan, Rameez Ahmad Parrey, was shot dead by four Lahkar-e-Taiba terrorists in Bandipora’s Hajin in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday, 27 September.

North Kashmir IG Nitish Kumar confirmed the involvement of LeT terrorists. He said:

Prima facie we know that Lashkar-e-Taiba’s Mohammed Bhai and his aides were behind the attack.

Constable Parrey, who was posted in Baramulla town with the 73 battalion, had come home for a holiday. Militants forced their way into the Kashmiri jawan’s house at Parrey Mohalla and fired indiscriminately at his family.

The jawan died on the spot. Four of his family members, his father, two brothers and an aunt, were injured, the police said.

The condition of the jawan's aunt was said to be serious, while that of the three others was stable.

SP Vaid, director general of Jammu and Kashmir police, termed the incident as "barbaric and inhumane". He added the guilty would be punished.

In a statement, the BSF said:

Constable Rameez Parrey, a serving personnel of 73 Bn BSF, who was on leave, has been cowardly killed by terrorists.

The incident comes after a Lieutenant ranked army officer, Ummer Fayaz, was killed by militants in south Kashmir in May. The officer was kidnapped by militants while attending a family marriage on 9 May. His bullet-riddled body was found the next morning at Harmen in Shopian district.
