Police officer gunned down in J&K

Suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants on Wednesday (October 7) gunned down Police Sub-Inspector Altaf Ahmed, who was considered a key operational man and credited with smashing of many militant hideouts and arrest and killing of terrorists on the basis of intelligence generated by him. Ahmed was shot at in Bandipora area, about 35 kms from Srinagar in Kashmir, this morning and he succumbed to his injuries later. Preliminary probe indicated that he became a victim of a trap laid by LeT. In the morning, Altaf, nicknamed as ’24-hour duty cop’, reached his office as usual and soon after he got a “tip-off” about the presence of top LeT commander Abdul Rehman alias ‘Qassim’ in a house nearby in Bandipora area. Wasting no time, the officer boarded his official vehicle and moved towards the house. According to the probe quoting eyewitnesses, a pick up van started following him from some distance. When the officer reached a secluded spot in Aragam area, the pick up van overtook his vehicle and militants sitting in it fired two bullets on the left side of his chest and one on the right side.
