Srinagar, June 16: A video of Indian Army jawan Aurangzeb Khan has been released by terrorists before they shot him dead. Aurangzeb, a rifleman posted with the 44 Rashtriya Rifles, was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists on Thursday. While an image of Aurangzeb was first put out by terrorists, a video was also released in which Aurangzeb is seen answering questions asked by his killers.
In the video, terrorists are first heard asking the Army jawan his name, his father's name and they then go on to ask him about the encounters that he had been part of. Aurangzeb is heard telling the terrorists that he and Major Rohit Shukla killed Sameer Tiger and other terrorists in an operation in Kashmir.
Our hearts bleed for Aurangzeb, who was martyred under tragic circumstances. It is shameful that Modi govt. cannot ensure the safety of our soldiers. On the eve of Eid, we salute the sacrifices of every soldier of the Indian Army who fight against all odds to keep India safe. pic.twitter.com/v2y9zuljGG

Aurangzeb, a resident of Poonch, was abducted in Pulwama when he was on his way home for Eid. He was laid to rest with full state honours in Poonch's Mendhar on Friday. The gathering at the deceased rifleman's burial raised slogans against Pakistan and also chanted 'Aurangzeb amar rahe'.
The bereaved father of the slain Indian Army jawan has demanded that the Narendra Modi government "finds and shoots" down the killers of his son "within the next 72 hours". "I am giving Narendra Modi 72 hours to take revenge on his son's killers, or else we will take revenge for the son's death from his killers," Aurangzeb's father said.
