    Constable Saleem Shah, who was on leave, was abducted by terrorists from his residence in the Mutalhama area of Kulgam district in south Kashmir last night, he said.

    A case has been registered and efforts are underway to nab the killers of the constable, he added.

    Shah is the 25th policeman killed by militants in Jammu and Kashmir this year -- most of them in attacks in south Kashmir.

    Earlier this month, police constable Javeed Ahmad Dar was abducted from his house at Vehil in Shopian district and later killed by militants, a few kilometres away from his house.

    Last month, Aurangzeb, an Indian Army soldier, was abducted from a private vehicle when he was going home for Eid holidays in Shopian. Later, his body was recovered from a Pulwama village.
