He revealed that the weapon of offence a pistol has been recovered from the Pampore residence of Farooq. Furthermore, he said that Police also arrested the other accused brother Ashiq from his house at Pattan in Baramula district.
The motive behind the murder, the DSP said, was a land dispute and some litigations going between the accused brothers and the deceased.
