His bullet-riddled body was found in Hermain Chowk of the district.

Fayaz was earlier abducted by the militants from Kulgam where he had gone to attend a family function, said reports. Fayaz had joined the army recently and hailed from Kashmir's Kulgam district.

The army had launched a massive operation, involving over 3,000 personnel, to flush out the terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district. The operation was launched following an input that around 30-40 militants were present in the region.

Last week, a civilian was killed and two soldiers were injured after terrorists ambushed an army patrol in Shopian.
