Mirwaiz also stated that what the state of Jammu and Kashmir has wreaked on them was largely responsible for this kind of brutalisation.

A police officer was beaten to death by a mob during the night in Srinagar outside historic Jamia Masjid, after he opened fire on people at Nowhatta.

Police chief S.P. Vaid says two alleged attackers have been arrested. "May the people who lynched DySP Pandith burn in hell for their sins".

Police on Friday morning identified the officer DSP Mohd Ayoub Pandit. She added that the Jammu and Kashmir police personnel were "brave people" and the force is one of the best in the country. Many policemen have been killed and their homes ransacked by suspected militants in a warning to local police officials to stop participating in counterinsurgency operations. "Pained beyond words at the horrific incident", he said on Twitter.

Witnesses said the mob attacked Mohammad Ayub Pandith late Thursday after he fired his pistol when confronted by worshippers at the mosque in the main city of Srinagar who suspected him of being a government spy. That group then quickly swelled into an irate mob that stripped the officer before killing him by hitting him with stones. After the body was taken to the police, the mob charged towards the empty security pickets of the area.

Police reinforcement was rushed in to restore normalcy in the area. "He was carrying out his duties as usual when the miscreants attacked him", informed sources said. Three people were injured in the alleged firing.

Vaid also said, "Logon ko samajhna chahiye achha kya hai bura kya hai, jo unki hifazat ke liye wahan duty kar raha tha use hi lynch kr diya". "He was beaten to death on spot". Ayub was local and belonged to Khanyar area.

The PTI report claims that it was learned that Muslims across Kashmir are observing Shab-e-Qadr (the night of power) with night-long prayers and supplications being made inside the mosques and shrines of the valley.

Meanwhile, the authorities have imposed curfew-like restrictions in seven police stations in Srinagar in wake of the protest call given by separatist groups against Thursday's civilian killing in southern Pulwama district.
