I have a document library where users from two different groups(group_1, group_2) has access.

The document library contain various file types .docx, .xls, .pdf. What I want to do is I want group_2 user to access files with .pdf extension. I don't want group_2 users to access other file types than pdf:s.

How can I accomplish this?
