The release came hours after the authorities released Assadullah Naikoo, the father of Hizbul Operational Commander, Riyaz Naikoo, in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier today, terrorists kidnapped two more relatives of policemen taking the number to 11 within the last three days.
Hizbul commander Riyaz Naikoo said in a statement released on social media that the police had compelled the militants to act against families because the cops had arrested a non-combatant relative of a militant.
