Militants abduct SPO in Tral
Family appeals militants to spare him
Srinagar, Jul 28: Militants have abducted a policeman from his home in Tral area of Pulwama district in south Kashmir, police said today even as the family of the abducted cop has appealed the militants to spare his life.
Special police officer (SPO) Mudasir Ahmad Lone was abducted by the militants from his home at Chankitar village of Tral last night, a police official said.
He said government forces have launched an operation to rescue the abducted policeman.
Meanwhile, the family of the abducted SPO made an emotional plea in a video, appealing to the militants to forgive and release him from their custody.
In an emotional appeal that has gone viral on social networking websites, the mother of the SPO surrounded by her three daughters, said: “He is my only son among four children. He (Mudasir) had to come back home (to quit the job) and was to declare it this Friday in the mosque. However, he got engaged in some work and didn’t get time.”
She appealed to the militants to have mercy on her and her three daughters and set Mudasir free for Allah’s sake.
“You are also my own children. I request you to kindly set him free and he will quit the job and apologise for all his mistakes. If you hear of any complaint in future you can kill all of us,” she said.

Srinagar: Some sources revealed late Saturday evening that the abducted SPO was released by Hizbul Mujahideen.
He was released after Hizbul Mujahideen uploaded his video wherein he appeals all SPO’s to leave their jobs and not to play in the hands of India, said the sources.
