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.
