Two locals have been detained for questioning in connection with the death of 26-year-old Hilal Ahmad Dar in an army firing in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district, police said.
Mohammad Rameez and Nazir Ahmad were detained for questioning on Sunday after police investigation suggested that the duo had a role in the death of Dar in army firing on July 24, they said.
Rameez, a former militant, was working as an informer for the Army said police. Meanwhile, Kashmir IGP SM Sahai said the investigation into the case was on and sharing the details at this moment can hamper the progress.
"We will share the details of the investigation once we reach the conclusion," he said.
Dar, a resident of Aloosa village, was killed allegedly in army firing last week in Bandipora, triggering protests by locals who claimed that he was an innocent local youth and not a militant.
