Srinagar February 6:

A student was killed allegedly during an ambush by the Army in north Kashmir's Kupwara district, following which a murder case was registered today against the unit which carried out the operation.

Manzoor Ahmad Magray, 22, was shot dead by the troopers of 4 Para of the Army, who had laid an ambush last night in Chogal area of Handwara town, 85 kms from here, in Kupwara district, officials said. The killing triggered protests in Chogal as residents demanded arrest of the Army personnel involved in the incident, they said.

The family members of the youth alleged that he was taken out of the house by the soldiers and severely tortured, resulting in his death. The protestors relented only after top civil and police officials assured the residents that a case will be filed against the concerned army unit.
