Two brothers found dead in Srinagar
Srinagar: Two brothers, allegedly timber
smugglers, have been found dead in the forests of Baramulla district in north Kashmir, officials said here Monday.
Altaf Hussain and Abid Ahmad, residents of Gujjar
Patti in Baramulla, were found dead in Sangri forests, 65 kms
from here, last night, a police spokesman said.
He said that the duo were allegedly involved in timber
smuggling and illegal felling of trees.
According to preliminary investigations, the murders
did not seem to be militancy-related as there were no bullet
injuries or torture marks on the bodies.
Three other suspected timber smugglers, who had
accompanied the deceased brothers to the forests on Saturday
night, have been detained for questioning, he said.
