The top judge in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir was shot on Tuesday while walking in the autonomous region's capital of Muzaffarabad and rushed to hospital with a gunshot injury, police said.

Ghulam Mustafa Mughal, the chief justice of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir's high court, was seriously injured when an unidentified man shot him in the northern city of Muzaffarabad, police said.

Mughal was taking a walk with his bodyguards near his home in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), when the gunman fired at him, deputy superintendent of police Yaseen Baig said. The attacker managed to escape.

The judge, hit by a bullet in the stomach, was taken to a nearby military hospital where he underwent surgery. Officials said he was out of danger. The motive behind the attack could not be ascertained.
