In a gruesome incident, militants beheaded the wife and daughter of a Special Police Officer in Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir, official sources said in Srinagar on Sunday.

The militants barged into Ghulam Hassan Qureshi's house in Bazipora village late on Saturday night and beheaded his 30-year-old wife Shaha and 8-year old daughter Misra.

The SPO was on duty at Bandipora at the time of the attack.

Before fleeing, the militants planted an Improvised Explosive Device in the SPO's house, which was later defused by the Bomb Disposal Squad.
