Two civilians were abducted and later shot dead allegedly by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district on Saturday, according to police.

Militants barged into the houses of Ghulam Hassan Dar alias Hassan Rassa and Bashir Ahmad Dar - both residents of Gulshan Mohalla, Shahgund Hajin in north Kashmir's Bandipora district last night and abducted them, a police official said.

"At about 3:30 am today, the militants shot both of them dead," he said.

Locals found their bodies near a mosque at Raheem Dar Mohalla, Shahgund, the official said.

Hassan (45) was reportedly uncle of Ahmed (26) and a driver by profession.
