A CRPF jawan was killed after suspected militants opened fire at him  in his home in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Sunday, police said.

The militants  barged into  the house of a local CRPF man, Naseer Ahmad Rather, at Naira village in the evening and shot at him injuring him critically, they said. “Naseer was rushed to district hospital Pulwama where he succumbed to injuries.

Special police officer (SPO) Mudasir Ahmad Lone was abducted by unknown gunmen from his village of Chankatar. He was working as a cook at Reshipora police post in Awantipore.
