Pulwama: A Special Police Officer (SPO) and his wife were killed after terrorists opened fire at them in their house at Hariparigam village in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.

Their daughter was also injured in the incident.

As per the latest updates, the daughter of the SPO has also succumbed to bullet injuries. Slain cop’s son is a jawan in Territorial Army. Two years ago, Ahmed was threatened to resign, but he never did.

The terrorists barged into the house of SPO Fayaz Ahmad and fired indiscriminately at him. His wife and daughter received critical gunshot injuries in the firing. All three were rushed to the hospital where Fayaz Ahmad and his wife succumbed to their injuries. Their daughter is critically injured and has been shifted to a hospital in Srinagar.

The area has been cordoned off and the police is searching for the assailants.

The incident came on a day when terrorists struck an Air Force base in Jammu in what is believed to be the first drone strike on an Indian military installation.

It is suspected that possibly the first time Pakistan-based terrorists have used unmanned aerial vehicles in an attack.

Two Air Force personnel suffered minor injuries in the explosions that took place a little before 2 am at the high security airport located around 14 km from the border with Pakistan.
