Watch video Militants on Saturday evening set free special police officer Mudasir Ahmad Lone after his mother made a passionate appeal to the abductors to “forgive” and release her son.

The SPO was abducted from his home here by three militants when he was repairing his bike inside the courtyard on Friday.

Police source said Lone was home on leave.

He is posted at police post Reshipora, Awantipora, as a cook.

He had been selected as an SPO last year.

On Saturday Hareefa, mother of the SPO addressed media at her home at Chan Kitar, Tral.

“He is my only son. He was supposed to announce during Friday prayers that he was quitting police job but some work held him back,” she said.

“You are also my own children. I request you to kindly set him free and he will quit the job and apologise for all his mistakes.

If you hear any complaint in future you can kill us all,” she appealed with folded hands and broke down.

“A few hours after his mother’s appeal the abductors released Lone.

He reached home in the evening,” said a source.

It may be recalled that gunmen last week had abducted a police constable Muhammad Saleem from his home in Kulgam district.

A day later his bullet-riddled body was recovered from Hawoora village of the district.
