Father-son duo shot dead by militants
Srinagar: Militants shot dead a man and his son in north Kashmir`s Kupwara district, officials said on Saturday.
Heavily-armed militants barged into the house of Ghulam Rasool Mir at Bawan-Rajwar in Handwara area of Kupwara, 100 kms from here, last night and fired indiscriminately on the inmates, they said.
Mir and his son Manzoor Ahmad were killed on the spot.
Preliminary investigations have found that the Mirs were targeted on the suspicion of being informers of security forces as a militant had been killed in a encounter inside their house in 2009, they said.
