Militants gunned down a woman and critically injured another in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Sunday, the police said.

The deceased has been identified as Yasmeena, a resident of Khonmoh, and the injured as Ruby, a resident of Seer Tral, they said.

A police cordon was put in place around the area to nab the culprits.

In a separate incident, a group of militants ransacked the house of a police official in the same district, authorities said.

Five masked militants ransacked the house of Ghulam Ahmad Bhat, an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) in Batagund village of Tral area on Saturday evening.

The inmates of the house including Bhat’s father managed to escape immediately upon the arrival of the militants, the authorities added.
