J&K School to be Renamed After Slain Hero Lt. Ummer Fayaz

Fayaz, 22, who belonged to 2 Rajput Rifles, was killed as he had come on a vacation to native district of Kulgam.

"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. He was supposed to return to his unit on May 25. The family did not approach the police or the Army thinking that the terrorists wouldn't harm a Kashmiri.

His body was found lying by a local at Harman orchard and subsequently after being informed, the police rushed to the spot. He had been fired at from a close range.

The killing of the Army officer comes just a few days after militants killed five policemen and two bank guards in an attack on a cash van in Phambai area of Kulgam. "The path Fayaz chose should inspire the people", former Indian Army chief General Deepak Kapoor said.

"We have conducted preliminary investigation... it does point out to (involvement of) a module of Hizbul Mujahideen active in Shopian", Inspector General of Police Kashmir S J M Gillani had said. "Kashmiris must think that if they can kill a Kashmiri boy, then they can kill anyone", Kadyan told IANS.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley called Fayaz's murder "a dastardly act of cowardice" and called Fayaz a role model. "This act (of Lieutenant Ummer's murder) should be condemned by all Kashmiris".
