Militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora on Thursday barged into a civilian's home in Hajin and abducted a man and his son. According to ANI, the father managed to escape and was admitted to a hospital. The son is still missing. CNN-News18 reported that the militants belong to Lashkar-e-Taiba.

On Monday, the police had said that militants abducted a man and seriously injured three others in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district. "At 10.10 pm, on Monday, four militants believed to be affiliated with the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) barged into Farooq Ahmed Parrey's house in Hajin area and started firing indiscriminately," police sources had told IANS.

"The militants injured Farooq's wife, daughter and brother with knives and abducted his son-in-law. Efforts are on to locate him," the sources had added.

"The terrorists used knives to cause grievous injuries to wife, daughter and brother of Farooq," a police spokesman had also told PTI.

The spokesman had said the militants had killed Farooq Ahmad's son last year.

"Muzzafar Ahmad Parrey was killed ruthlessly by terrorists last summer. He was first decapitated and then the body was thrown into the river," he had added.
