Unconfirmed reports said the solider had come to his home to mourn his son's death.

Militants shot dead a Territorial Army (TA) man at his residence in Suhart area of south Kashmir's Kulgam district on Monday.

Reports said militants barged into the house of Mukhtar Ahmad Malik alias Mukhtar Gola of TA 162 Battalion and was shot at from a close range. Malik died on the spot.

The militants have been increasingly attacking soldiers and policemen on leave in south Kashmir.
