Younus and four others had entered the house of Munshi Ram in Rajnagar village in Budhal in Rajouri district, 180 km north-east of Jammu, on Oct 9, 2005 and slit his throat as well as of his brother, his two sons and a nephew.

Younus was arrested in 2006. This is the first case where a militant involved in massacres has been found guilty and sentenced to death in Jammu and Kashmir, where militancy has been raging for the past 20 years and led to the deaths of more than 50,000 people.

The hilly areas of Jammu region have witnessed several massacres of Hindus, many of them in Doda, Ramban, Kishtwar, Reasi, Rajouri and Poonch areas.
