"They parked the auto rickshaw. Three people were inside the vehicle. They shot the driver first and fired three bullets into his body. He died. Then they aimed at us. I, however, managed to escape their attack. But the man, who runs a shop next to mine died in the attack. Then, they went to the police station," he said.
Meanwhile, the security was beefed up in areas around the attacked police station in Hiranagar village of Kathua district.
India has faced an insurgency in its part of Muslim-majority Kashmir since 1989 and has long accused Pakistan of supporting the militants fighting Indian rule.
