In yet another dastardly act, terrorists today shot dead a police officer at his residence in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

Haleem Gujjar, the special police officer (SPO) of Jammu and Kashmir Police, was fired upon by the terrorists at Gutroo area of Tral.

The police officer was critically injured in the attack. Haleem was rushed to the nearby hospital where he was declared ‘brought dead’. 

More details are awaited.

The attack comes two days after terrorists gunned down a former sarpanch in Shopian whose house was later set on fire.

On June 15, another police officer, Shabir Ahmad Dar, was shot at from a close range in South Kashmir's Kulgam. Dar had also succumbed to his injuries on his way to the hospital.
