Srinagar : All the 11 family members of policemen abducted by militants during the last three days from south Kashmir were released unharmed on Friday, police said.

Their release came hours after the police freed the father of a Hizbul Mujahideen operational commander, Assadullah Naikoo.

Hizbul commander Riyaz Naikoo said in a statement released on social media on Friday that the police had "compelled" the militants to act against families because the police had arrested a non-combatant relative of a militant.
