Srinagar: A policeman was shot dead outside his Srinagar home by terrorists on Tuesday, said the police, adding that his seven-year-old daughter was injured in the attack. The cop has been identified as Saifullah Qadri of Srinagar’s Soura area.

Reportedly, the daughter is out of danger and has been shifted to a hospital for treatment. On Monday, the Jammu and Kashmir Police said they have arrested five ‘hybrid’ terrorists of the proscribed Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) outfit, three of whom were allegedly involved in the killing of a sarpanch in Baramulla district last month.

‘Hybrid’ terrorists are those who are not listed as terrorists but are radicalised enough to carry out a terror strike and then slip back into the routine life.
