Terrorists gunned down a schoolteacher and his two sons on Wednesday night in Budgam district of central Kashmir, an official spokesman said.

Mohammed Shafi Wani and his sons, Zahoor Ahmad and Jehangir, were fired upon by the terrorists in their house at Gopalpora, he said.

While Wani and Ahmad died instantly, Jehangir succumbed to injuries in a hospital in Srinagar on Thursday morning, the spokesman said.

The residents of Gopalpora took to the streets and blocked the Srinagar-Charar-e-Sharief road parallel to the village when the bodies were brought for burial on Thursday. They demanded an inquiry into the killings, he said.

Four members of a family at Ribon-Sopore in Baramulla district were killed in a similar manner on December 20.
