Security forces had killed five Hizbul Mujahideen militants, one of whom was a professor.  

Militants ransacked the house of a police officer in Jammu and Kashmir's Budgam district, and drove off with his son and nephew in his car before freeing the youngsters and torching the vehicle, police said.

The militants forced their way into the house of Sub-Inspector Muhammad Subhan Bhat in Chadoora area late Saturday evening and ransacked it. State police chief SP Vaid assured action.

Last month, militants ransacked the house of a senior police officer in south Kashmir's Shopian district after threatening the inmates of dire consequences if the officer did not quit his job.
