In a stark reminder of Lt Umar Faiyaz's killing in May, the terrorists gunned down a jawan of the Border Security Forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora on Wednesday.

The terrorists stormed the house of Rameez Ahmad Parray in Bandipora's Hajin area, and started firing indiscriminately.

Other members of Parray's family including his father Mohamad Mqabool Parray, mother and his aunt also got injured in the attack.

The trio have been shifted to hospital for treatment. The Jammu and Kashmir Police took to Twitter to inform about the killing.

The BSF also issued the statement and said the entire force stands by Parray's family.

Lt Faiyaz was was picked up from his house at Harmein in Kulgam in May. The body of the young officer was later found three kilometres from his house.
