Police said they are investigating his phone records and other activities to ascertain if he was in touch with anyone with terror links. The Army so far maintained that he is "missing" with no information about his joining any terror group.

"Today afternoon terrorists opened fire in Shopian which resulted in injuries to one civilian identified as Rafiq Lone and a policeman identified as Bilal Ahmad", a police spokesman said.

"Preliminary investigation revealed the involvement of outlawed Hizbul Mujahideen outfit in this attack", he added. Both were shifted to Srinagar hospital for treatment.
