An Army man was reportedly kidnapped by militants in south Kashmir’s Shopian district on Thursday.

The soldier, identified as Aurangzeb of the 44 Rashtriya Rifles (RR), was travelling to Rajouri district when the militants stopped his vehicle in Kalampora area and kidnapped him. The soldier is a resident of Poonch district.

Meanwhile, Army sources in New Delhi said they were already "taking action" to locate and rescue the jawan.

"The information of one jawan of 44 Rashtriya Rifles who was proceeding on leave having been abducted has come in. Action is being ensured to locate the person and get him," a source said.

The abduction comes on a day when Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is discussing whether to extend or call off the Ramadan ceasefire that is due to end on Friday.

He was kidnapped around 2 km from the camp where he was posted. With Agencies
