The Army has detained three of its personnel over their role in the killing of slain soldier Aurangzeb in June last year.According to media reports that the three men, all belonging to the 44 Rashtriya Rifles, are reportedly under detention after investigations revealed that they might have leaked the information about the movements of Aurangzeb.Aurangzeb, a rifleman with 44 Rashtriya Rifles - was kidnapped and shot dead by militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama when he was travelling in a private vehicle, on his way home in Poonch to celebrate Eid with his family.His bullet-riddled body was found in Pulwama by a team of police and Army. He was shot in the head and neck.The report said: “When he came out of the camp, he was spotted by a local resident and taken to the hospital.” 

In District hospital Srinagar, where the doctors saw his “whole body bruised”, they referred him to SMHS hospital in Srinagar.Within minutes after his kidnapping, Aurangzeb was seen in a short video in a forest answering questions on his duties, postings and operations. Hours later, his corpse was recovered in Pulwama.The unit, according to several reports, had violated the SOP and instead of using a bulletproof vehicle, they had used a civilian car to ferry the soldier to the bus stand.Aurangzeb was part of an officer's team which killed Hizbul Mujahideen militant Sameer Tiger.He was awarded Shaurya Chakra posthumously. After his death, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Army chief General Bipin Rawat had separately visited the family to express their condolences.Aurangzeb's father Mohammad Hanief joined the BJP in the presence of Narendra Modi at a public rally in Samba on Sunday.  (PTK)
