Pulwama: The family of slain special police officer (SPO) in Hajin Payeen village of Pulwama said that their son was innocent and was killed in cold blood.
“We were inside when few persons came and asked about Sameer. Then they caught hold of him in lobby and fired at him,” said the slain SPO’s father.
He adds, “He was employed as an SPO since the past two years. He also used to attend for duty.”
“They locked our room from outside while getting caught hold of Sameer. I shouted at them to verify his guilt. I got out of the room somehow only to see his dead body,” said slain’s mother.
Pertinently, Sameer was killed by suspected militants on Tuesday evening. “Sameer was fired upon by suspected militants at his home. He was working as an SPO,” a senior police officer said yesterday.
