Two civilians beheaded in Kashmir

August 04, 2004 13:19 IST

A group of militants on Wednesday beheaded a man and his son in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, official sources said.

The heavily-armed ultras forced their way into Anwer Hussain Gujjar's house in remote Dera Bangla village in Bhudal tehsil of Rajouri district in the early hours and took him and his son away with them.

A few hours later, the militants returned and dumped the bodies in front of Gujjar's house. The militants warned the villagers that they must not help the security forces.

The militants have killed 42 civilians, including 11 women, in the Rajouri-Poonch border sector in the last two months.

In a separate incident, ultras opened fire on an army search party in Surankote hills of Poonch district on Tuesday night, critically injuring a special police officer.
