J&K Cops File Fir against Troops for Killing a Cattle-Herder. The remote Kohli village of Ramban district in Jammu was gripped by tension after security forces allegedly shot dead a cattle-rearer and injured another, prompting the police to register a case of murder against the Army. The incident occurred when Muhammad Rafiq Gujjar and Shakeel Ahmad had gone to feed the cattle at Kohli village. “We had gone to feed the grass to cattle. They fired at us from behind. I immediately fell down. He was killed,” said Shakeel Ahmad, who is currently being treated at the hospital. The Indian Army, however, said the patrol was fired upon by the suspected individuals during an operation in Kohli area on August 5. The Army patrol saw some suspicious activity. The suspected individuals were challenged by the Army as per Standing Operating Procedure. On being challenged, the suspected individuals opened fire upon the patrol and on this, the Army retaliated to the firing by suspects effectively,” said Lieutenant Colonel Devender Anand, defence spokesman at Jammu.
