Srinagar, February 26 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, a Kashmiri youth was killed mysteriously during police custody in Tral on Monday.

The detainee, Mushtaq Ahmad Chopan, was killed in a mysterious blast in Tral, police said.

Police added that Mushtaq, who was a former activist of Hizbul Mujahideen, was arrested by Indian police on January 9 in Sopore and was lodged in Tral police station.
