Srinagar: A former militant of the Hizbul Mujahideen outfit was killed by separatist guerrillas in Jammu and Kashmir`s Shopian district on Saturday evening, police said on Sunday.

Shabir Ahmad Mir, the 33-year-old former militant, was shot at inside his home in Ramnagri village, a senior police officer told a news agency.

He was taken to a hospital, but succumbed to his injuries en route.

Sources said Mir had surrendered before security forces some years back and had been living a normal life in his village.

No guerrilla group claimed responsibility for the attack.
