South Korean patrol officer killed in the line of duty

A South Korean Patrol officer working for the fisheries department, has been shot dead in the line of duty. North Korean officers are said to have shot, poured oil and set his Body ablaze as reported by the Ministry. The capital of North Korea is yet to comment on the matter of an act expressed as an anti-corona virus measure.

The official was 10km (6 miles) into the North’s border and very close to the island of Yeonpyeong when he disappeared.

North Korea has tightened it’s borders with a policy of shoot-to-kill policy in a bid to prevent the virus in the country. South Korea strongly condemned the act and strongly demanded an explanation and punishment for the involved parties. The country’s National Security Council said the North could “not justify shooting and burning the corpse of our unarmed citizen who showed no sign of resistance”.
