Two civilians were abducted and later shot dead allegedly by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district on Saturday, according to police.
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.
Locals found their bodies near a mosque at Raheem Dar Mohalla, Shahgund, the official said.
Hassan (45) was reportedly uncle of Ahmed (26) and a driver by profession.
"Preliminary investigation suggests the involvement of outlawed terror outfit LeT in the incident," the official said.
"A case has been registered and investigations were taken up," he added.
