A J&K Police sub-inspector was shot by unidentified gunmen in south Kashmir's Pulwama district while a 40-year-old PDP worker was gunned down by militants in Srinagar on Sunday.
SI Imtiyaz Ahmed was shot dead in Wahibugh village of Pulwama, a police officer said. Sources said Imtiyaz was in civil clothes and travelling in his car when militants intercepted it.
"It looks like that he was first abducted and later shot dead from a point-blank range," sources said. The slain sub-inspector was posted in the intelligence wing of J&K Police in Srinagar.
The slain political worker, Mohd. Amin Dar, a resident of Gangbugh, was an associate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader and former minister Syed Altaf Bukhari, officials said.
Dar was fired upon by the militants. He was rushed to a hospital where he died, they said.
