Suspected militants ransacked the house of a police officer in Batagund Village of Tral Township in Pulwama district of south Kashmir on Saturday night.

An official said that militants vandalised the house of ASI Ghulam Ahmed Bhat in Batagund village around 10 pm. 

“Few masked gunmen came inside our house and vandalized the property. Our family members, including my father immediately fled from the house,” said the policeman's son Suhail Ahmed Bhat.

Soon after the incident, forces rushed to the spot and conducted searches to nab the assailants.
