    Riyaz Naikoo, also known as Mohammad Bin Qasim, of terror outfit Hizb-ul-Mujahideen has taken responsibility for the abductions. Naikoo is a category A++ terrorist and is currently the most wanted man in the Kashmir Valley, along with Zakir Musa.

    New Delhi (Sputnik) — Terrorists in India have abducted eleven persons, all of whom are brothers and sisters of serving officers of the Jammu and Kashmir police. The abductions have dealt another blow to the morale of the Jammu and Kashmir police, who lost four of their members in a terrorist attack on Wednesday.

    "Police has compelled us to follow the course of an eye for an eye and an ear for an ear. Policemen are advised in their own interest to give up their jobs or be prepared to face the worst," wanted terrorist Riyaz Naikoo, whose father was arrested by police two days ago, posted on social media.  

    A senior police official in Kashmir Range, Swayam Prakash Pani, said that the investigations are underway to ascertain the facts about the abduction of family members of cops.

    Meanwhile, political leaders have termed the series of abduction a worrisome sign for Jammu and Kashmir.  

    "Militants and forces victimizing each other's families are highly condemnable and mark a new low in our situation. Families shouldn't become casualties and made to suffer for something they have little control over," Mehbooba Mufti, former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, said.
