Militants shoot dead Kashmir policeman, his wife & daughter in Pulwama

Militants shot dead a special police officer, his wife and daughter in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, officials said on Monday.


The rebels barged into the house of SPO Fayaz Ahmad at Hariparigam in the Awantipora area at around 11 pm on Sunday and opened fire on the family, the officials said.

The injured were rushed to a hospital where the SPO succumbed.

His wife Raja Begum and daughter Rafia also died later on.

Armed forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation to track down the militants but no arrests have been made so far, the officials said on Monday.

Militants have intensified attacks on cops and other armed forces. While an inspector and a constable were killed in the Nowgam and Eidgah areas of Srinagar last week, a civilian died in a grenade attack on forces at Barbarshah in the heart of the city.

Militants also barged into a shop in Habba Kadal last week, killing the owner from Kalaspora locality of the summer capital, Srinagar.
