A Jammu and Kashmir Police Head Constable was shot dead by militants at his residence in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Tuesday.
Police said terrorists fired upon Head Constable Ghulam Mohammad Dar, a resident of Wailoo Kralpora in Baramulla district.
“He was shifted to Sub District hospital in a critical condition where he succumbed to his injuries ,” a police officer said.
“Injured Police Personnel #succumbed to his injuries & attained #martyrdom. We pay our rich tributes to the #martyr & stand by his family at this critical juncture,” Police in a post on X said.
Soon after the incident, senior security officers rushed to the area and a search operation was going on to trace the attackers.
This is the third targeted militant attack in Kashmir in as many days.
Only yesterday, in a first such killing in Kashmir this year, a labourer from Uttar Pradesh Mukesh Kumar was shot dead by militants in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.
On Sunday, a police inspector Masroor Ahmad was critically wounded after a militant shot at him in Srinagar’s Eidgah locality, while he was playing cricket.
