Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Lone said, “Spare a thought for the parents of three young men whose bodies have been exhumed today. Three able bodied athletic men trek 80 kms in search of livelihood. And a few months later the parents take their violently ravaged bodies back. Imagine the plight of the parents”.

Pertinently authorities on Friday late hours exhumed the bodies of trio namely Imtiyaz (20), Mohammad Ibrar (16) and Abrar Ahmad (25) who were killed in a fake encounter on July 18 this year in Amshipora village of south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
