In the second incident in as many days, suspected militants today shot at and injured a woman panchayat member in Sopore area in Baramulla district of north Kashmir.

Militants shot Zoona, wife of Mohammad Ramzan, in the neck at her house at Hardshiva Sopore, some 52-km from here, police said. The woman panchayat member was taken to a hospital in Sopore but was referred here for treatment.

This is second attack on panchayat members in as many days in Sopore. Militants yesterday shot dead sarpanch Habibullah Mir in Sopore.

In south Kashmir, ultras shot dead a civilian after abducting him in Pulwama district. The militants kidnapped Mohammad Shafi Dar, a contractor by profession, from his native Aglar village in Pulwama, at around 5 pm yesterday, police said.

Dar's bullet-riddled body was recovered from a nearby village late last night.
