A former special police officer (SPO) was killed by suspected terrorists on Friday after they kidnapped him in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir, the police said.
The bullet-riddled body of former SPO Basharat Ahmad Wagay was recovered, hours after he was kidnapped, a police official said.
Besides the former SPO, two other persons were also kidnapped by unidentified gunmen.
The police official said that the two other kidnapped persons -- Zahid Ahmad Wagay and Reyaz Ahmad Wagay -- were released by the suspected terrorists.
Terrorists killed two persons -- one shot dead and another terminated in ISIS-style execution -- in South Kashmir last week on the charge of being informers of security forces.
