Terrorists today fired upon a Special Police Officer in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.

The man, Showkat Ahmad Dar, has been shifted to a hospital. 

The incident took place near his house in Rahmoo, ANI reported.

The incident took place the same day as an encounter between security forces and terrorists in Srinagar's Chattabal area.

One terrorist was killed and a CRPF personnel injured in that encounter.

Two persons were abducted and later shot dead allegedly by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants in Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said today.

Militants barged into the houses of Ghulam Hassan Dar alias Hassan Rassa and Bashir Ahmad Dar - both residents of Gulshan Mohalla, Shahgund Hajin in north Kashmir's Bandipora district -- last night and abducted them, a police official said.

"At about 3:30 am today, the militants shot both of them dead," he said.

"Preliminary investigation suggests the involvement of outlawed terror outfit LeT in the incident," the official said.

"A case has been registered and investigations taken up," he said.
