Three men were found dead under suspicious circumstances near the site of a militant ambush on two Indian Army vehicles in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district. The attack, which occurred on Thursday, claimed the lives of five army personnel and left two injured, according to PTI.

The deceased, identified as Safeer Hussain (43), Mohammad Showket (27), and Shabir Ahmad (32), residents of Topa Peer village in Bufliaz, were among the eight individuals picked up by the Army for questioning in connection with the ambush at Dhatyar Morh, under the jurisdiction of the Surankote police station, according to the news agency.

Poonch Deputy Commissioner Choudhary Mohammad Yasin and Senior Superintendent of Police Vinay Kumar reached Bufliaz following reports of the deaths, while Jammu Divisional Commissioner Ramesh Kumar also arrived in Surankote to assess the situation.

The cause of their deaths remains unknown, adding to the mystery surrounding the incident. Authorities are investigating the circumstances leading to the death of these individuals.

The militant ambush involved three to four heavily armed militants who targeted a Maruti Gypsy and an Army truck late Thursday afternoon.

In response to the escalating tensions, mobile Internet services were suspended in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch and Rajouri districts early Saturday. The suspension of mobile Internet services follows widespread resentment among the public, fueled by the circulation of videos purportedly showing the torture of the suspects picked up by the Army for questioning.
