SRINAGAR

Suspected militants snatched two rifles from security personnel guarding the residence of a retired police officer in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district, police said Monday.

The militants barged into the residence of former police officer Sheikh Ghulam Mohammad in central Kashmir’s Chadoora area late Sunday night, a police official said.

The official said that the militants over-powered the former police officer’s security guards and fled with two carbine rifles of the guards posted there.

Police have launched a search to trace the weapons and nab the militants, he said.
