Three kill Shopian man for BlackBerry phone

A 28-year-old youth, Bilal Ahmad Bhat, was brutally killed by three labourers from Pulwama district, who were working in his orchard at Bashkuchan village near Shopian. It was the aspiration to show-off a Blackberry mobile phone and to live a stylish life that led the trio to take to crime. "Before murdering Bhat, the trio snatched the BlackBerry cellphone," said Shopian station house officer (SHO) Irshad Reshi. It was on April 23, locals spotted the body of Bhat, a contractual lecturer, near his orchard. The body bore strangulation and injury marks.
