"An SIT headed by an officer of the rank of superintendent of police has been formed for speedy investigation of the lynching incident in which Deputy Superintendent of Police Mohammad Ayub Pandith was killed on the night of June 22", a police official said.

While two persons were arrested yesterday, three more have been picked up since.

The police had said the mob attacked the Deputy Superintendent of Police (Security) after spotting him behaving suspiciously outside Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta locality during congregational prayers at the mosque, NDTV reported. Pandith was on frisking duty outside the Jamia Masjid and was reportedly clicking pictures of people coming out of the mosque.

Pandith was stripped and lynched by a mob outside the historic Jamia Masjid here, triggering outrage across Kashmir and drawing all-round condemnation.

The Director General of Police, S P Vaid, has promised not to spare the people behind the lynching.
