Srinagar: Hundreds of people took to the streets at Nadihal in North Kashmir's Baramulla district to protest the alleged killing of three missing youth in a 'fake encounter' on Thursday. Residents alleged that the Army had killed Shahnawaz Ahmad Khan, Mohammed Shafi Lone and Riyaz Ahmad Lone and buried them in Kupwara district. SP Altaf Ahmad said police have started investigations into the case and arrested a surrendered militant, Bashir Ahmad Lone, and two of his accomplices for questioning. 'The parents of the youth had lodged a missing complaint on May 10.' The officer said cops were yet to confirm the incident, but the parents of the youth claimed that photographs of their mutilated bodies were published in a local daily after an encounter along the LoC in Kupwara.
