SRINAGAR (AFP) - Gunmen shot dead an Indian paramilitary and wounded two others when they ambushed their patrol vehicle in Srinagar on Thursday, police said.

“One of the three BSF (Border Security Force) soldiers injured in the incident died,” Abdul Gani Mir, Held Kashmir’s inspector general of police, told AFP.

A BSF official, who cannot be identified, said the three members of the force were hit when gunmen opened fire as they drove through Nowgam on the outskirts of Srinagar.
