Defence authorities in Delhi had yesterday identified six militants belonging to Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), saying they were involved in the abduction and killing of the 22-year-old Army officer in Shopian district of Kashmir. "He will be a role modal for many Kashmiri boys willing to join the Army", he said. Witnesses said the army officer was taken away while he was sitting with the bride, even as more militants waited outside the house.

"There is no such advisory but yes, we have said that anybody (local army man) who is coming into the areas (to visit their homes), he should inform the nearest army camp so that we can provide security to him", he said. "Though we have identified the militants, their names can not be revealed immediately", he said.

Lieutenant General (Retired) VK Chaturvedi who participated in the event said the country has lost a role model.

On Saturday evening, hundreds of people gathered at India Gate to hold a candle light march to mourn the death of Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz, according to media reports.
