Two masked militants barged into the house of BSF jawan Mohammad Arif at Khandi village in Kandi belt, about 215 km from here, at around 0400 hours today, official sources said here.

The militants opened fire killing Arif and his wife Malika Khatoon besides injuring his 9-year-old son Abrar Ahmed, the sources said, adding the militants later escaped.
