Srinagar: The body of a middle-aged man who had gone missing from HMT Khushipora area of Srinagar outskirts was found in a flood channel in Bemina area of Srinagar city on Monday.
40-year-old Ghulam Rasool Wani was missing since July 24 last month. Family members of the slain had staged multiple protest demonstrations seeking his whereabouts.
Wani had gone for jogging around Sharifabad area of HMT in the morning hours of 24 July and since then he was untraceable.
The deceased was the maternal uncle of known Kashmir cricketer, Manzoor Pandav.
Pandav told Kashmir News Trust that they found a bag of heavy stones attached with the back of Ghulam Rasool Wani. “Prima facie, it seems a murder and we want police to investigate the matter thoroughly,” he said.
The deceased was a driver by profession.
A police official said that a missing report already stands registered at Police Station Parimpora. “Investigation has been taken up,” he added. KNT
