Suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants abducted a man and his son from Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district, with the former escaping with bullet injuries, an official said. This is the second case of kidnapping in the district’s Hajin area in the past 48 hours.

The incident took place around 11:45 pm on Wednesday, a police spokesman said. “Terrorists believed to be affiliated with banned terror organisation LeT, barged into the house of Abdul Gaffar Bhat at Hajin in Bandipora and started to beat up people,” he was quoted as saying by PTI.
