Ahmad and his wife succumbed to bullet injuries at a hospital late on Sunday night. Their daughter died on Monday morning.
The family lived in Hariparigam in Awantipora, according to Kashmir Zone police. Police stated that they have launched a search operation in the area to track down the terrorists.
