Two Central Reserve Police Force jawans, abducted from a forest area in Shopian district, were killed by militants, official sources said in Srinagar [Images] on Wednesday.
Militants kidnapped three constables of the CRPF, who were on intelligence gathering mission, from Keller and Paddar forest area on Tuesday.
While one of the constables managed to escape from the clutches of the kidnappers, the other two -- Mohammad Rafique and Asif Ali -- were killed by their captors, the sources said.
They said all the three constables were Kashmiris and had been assigned the task of intelligence gathering in the forests of Shopian, which is believed to be infested with militants.
