Srinagar, Kashmir: Twenty-two year old youth, who was arrested on charges of stone throwing in past, was found dead in mysterious circumstances today in Indian-controlled Kashmir.

Farooq Azam Khan, who was working as Data Operator, has gone missing three days ago. His body was fished out from river Jehlum in the outskirts of the summer capital, Srinagar, police said.

Farooq was arrested in 2009 on stone-throwing charges. “He had many cases and had to appear in court. We went to court to get his bail because he didn’t appear in the court a few days ago in one of the cases. But we couldn’t get bail due to some reasons. Besides, his lawyer wasn’t present there,” his brother, Nasir Azam Khan said.

Nasir ruled out that his brother may have committed suicide. “There was no such problem with him,” he said, adding, “He didn’t have personal animosity with anybody.”

Some witnesses claimed that “he had marks on his body, indicating that he dies after being hit by something,” but the police, on the other hand, said, “there were no such marks.”

The family claimed that policemen came to their house several times after Farooq missed the court hearing. However, police denied that they were on a look out for him.

“At 5:30 PM on 22 August, he left for office. We called him and he said I am on my way. After an hour, his mother again called him and he said, ‘he would reach home in five minutes.’ But, after that his phone was switched off. We traced his phone and the last location it showed was Zaina Kadal but after that we remained unaware about his whereabouts,” Nasir added.

“He was not wanted in any case, why we would search him?” Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Safa Kadal said.

The autopsy report hasn’t been handed to the family yet.

    I’m intrigued by the roundabout way in which this post begins. “.. who was arrested on charges of stone pelting..”, huh? Why not just say “.. who was part of the mob pelting stones..”?

    I guess Jihadi freedom fighters are, after all, pretty scared of cops and their interrogation rooms!

    Allah Hu Akbar!

    Sanjeev..This is not directed at you but to those that read your comments.

    You need not reply, having said that you surely may. Be it denouncing these retorts as spam or any other jest you try. It will just get repeated over & over & over & over…catch my drift.. :)

    If you are a regular on this site. You know these people like Sanjeev (& the like) as a craven sods that perpetuates the propaganda and agenda of India.

    Their purpose is to coerce and deceive the outsider who doesn’t follow the Kashmir conflict with vigor.

    Thus far they have abused, fueled hatful attacks both virtually and on ground.

    Please take their responses with a grain of salt & ask yourself why the voice of the Kashmir walla is repeatedly attacked by these hate mongers.

    I ask the reader to also consider the beauty of Kashmirwalla to allow them their voice as erroneous it may be. Regardless take this as your warning & please do your research on the Occupied region of Kashmir before coming to any conclusions.

    The voice of the voiceless must carry on, wether being attacked by the likes of mentioned or gaged by agencies on the ground.

    Truth must prevail, no matter how often and powerful the spin masters try to sabotage our attempts to putting it forth.

      Jonah Ryder has very generously excused me from replying. I thank him for his considerate outlook. However, I have indeed replied to this comment elsewhere. :)

      Jai Hind, Jai Kashmir, jai Hindustani Sainik..

        Name calling begets name calling. Sly remarks beget sly remarks, reap what you sow.

        But then again you are indeed here to sow precisely as you do..right ol buddy ol chum :)

          @ Jonah Ryder,

          So far, you were making poor guesses about me. It seems that you have realized the futility of it and have raised (lowered?) the bar by openly pondering about my mother’s child-rearing skills.

          I assure you that I am not easily offended. I will refrain from responding to the personal and concentrate on the subject.

          Thanks for enriching the debate.

          Jai Hind. jai Kashmir. Jai Hindustani Sainik! :)

    sanjeev?? i see that u r the most wella person here…it seems u have no work. Are u a retired, mentally sick person playing the slog overs of your life ?? Or is it that you are paid to spread trash on kashmirwallah website. You are a victim of verbal diarrheoa… ur posts time and again prove that u r brain dead. go mind ur business and go for a teerth yatra or something before u die.

      @ Rahil

      I strongly recommend that you find some better occupation (that mischievous word again!) than making ill-informed guesses about me. Whether I have work or not or what my age is or how my health is are points entirely peripheral to the subject.

      If you actually have nothing beter to do, you might as well respond to the points I raise here. This “wella” Jihad should keep you entertained, since you lack the guts to cross the LoC yourself! :)

      Jai Hind! Jai Kashmir! Jai Jawan! :)

        It was never yours it can truly never be yours. Yours is the futility ours is the struggle. Say what you will, we know what we are and who we are. We know damn well what you are.

        This is what the world needs to know. This is what you suppress. This is occupation. This is #OccupiedKashmir.

        Sanjeev this below paragraph is a thanks to you ol buddy for pointing out this slight. :)

        Thank you for pointing out that poignant independent research of, unbiased, & unfiltered quality is needed. Without holding affiliations to one side or another. This must first be done by the reader. Clearly Sanjeev & the kind are adherent to one side of the story. Therefore we cannot take their points into account. Which brings me to yours truly, yes I and others like me are on the contrary, but I am not telling you, the reader what to believe, simply to do your research. Never mind, the research the charlatans try to pass off as such. If the the reader is blessed with intellect & can deduce upon the answer with following logic, then truly victory will be for the good.

        Here are the common problems in arguments that occur or are caused. These are often used as tools and devices by certain un-named parties to coerce and deceive. Therefore it of utmost importance to be aware of the following Fallacies:

        Here are some examples of fallacies you may encounter when making an argument:
        Appeal to Ignorance – An appeal to ignorance occurs when one person uses another person’s lack of knowledge on a particular subject as evidence that their own argument is correct.
        For example: “You can’t prove that there aren’t Martians living in caves under the surface of Mars, so it is reasonable for me to believe there are.”
        Appeal to Authority – This type of fallacy is also referred to as Argumentum ad Verecundia (argument from modesty). In this case, rather than focusing on the merits of an argument, the arguer will try to attach their argument to a person of authority in an attempt to give credence to their argument.
        For example: “Well, Isaac Newton believed in Alchemy, do you think you know more than Isaac Newton?”
        Appeal to Popular Opinion – This type of appeal is when someone claims that an idea or belief is true simply because it is what most people believe.
        For example: “Lots of people bought this album, so it must be good.”
        Association Fallacy – Sometimes called “guilt by association,” this occurs when someone links a specific idea or practice with something or someone negative in order to infer guilt on another person.
        For example: “Hitler was a vegetarian, therefore, I don’t trust vegetarians.”
        Attacking the Person – Also known as Argumentum ad Hominem (argument against the man), this is quite a common occurrence in debates and refers to a person who substitutes a rebuttal with a personal insult.
        For example: “Don’t listen to Eddie’s arguments on education, he’s an idiot.”
        Begging the Question – This type of fallacy is when the conclusion of an argument is assumed in the phrasing of the question itself.
        For example: “If aliens didn’t steal my newspaper, who did?” (assume that the newspaper was actually stolen).
        Circular Argument – Also referred to as Circulus in Probando, this fallacy is when an argument takes its proof from a factor within the argument itself, rather than from an external one.
        For example: “I believe that Frosted Flakes are great because it says so on the Frosted Flakes packaging.”
        Correlation Implies Causation Fallacy – Otherwise known as Cum Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc, this is a fallacy in which the person making the argument connects two events which happen sequentially and assumes that one caused the other.
        For example: “I saw a magpie and ten minutes later, I crashed my car, therefore, magpies are bad luck.”
        False Dilemma/Dichotomy – Sometimes referred to as Bifurcation, this type of fallacy occurs when someone presents their argument in such a way that there are only two possible options.
        For example: “If you don’t vote for this candidate, you must be a Communist.”
        Non Sequitur – A fallacy wherein someone asserts a conclusion that does not follow from the propositions.
        For example: “All Dubliners are from Ireland. Ronan is not a Dubliner, therefore, he is not Irish.”
