After mother’s appeal, SPO freed by Hizb

29

After appeal by SPO’s mother militant outfit Hizbul Mujahidin on Saturday said that they had forgiven the  abducted SPO and had freed him.

In a video which has the message of abducted SPO, Mudasir Ahmad Lone as well, a Hizb militant can be heard saying that Lone was forgiven only because of appeal by his mother, “ We had abducted you only to kill you, like every other SPO who will not resign till Friday  you would have been killed too. We forgave you only because you have three sisters at home,” he says.

The militant further adds that there was no other reason for the outfit to free the abductee other than that he was a lone brother of three sisters, “ Don’t think that we have forgiven you under any pressure or for that matter for the warning of DSP and SHO who had said that they will hurt our family. It doesn’t matter to us if they hurt our family, even if our family gets martyred for Islam we will consider that as an achievement,” the militant can be heard saying.

In the video Lone while confessing that SPOs are used to keep an eye on stone throwers and militants,  has asked other SPOs to return home.

Reportedly the SPO has reached his home safely.

Earlier in the day the family of the abducted  Special Police Officer (SPO) of Jammu and Kashmir police  had appealed the militants to forgive their son and allow him to return to his family.
