Man shot dead by terrorists in Srinagar, 2nd targeted attack in 24 hours

Prime News, National (Srinagar), Nov 9:- A man at a shop owned by a Kashmiri Pandit was killed when terrorists opened fire at the store in Jammu and Kashmir’s Srinagar on Monday. This was the second targeted killing after a policeman was also shot dead by terrorists on Sunday.

Soon after the shooting, the man, identified as Mohammad Ibrahim, was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition but was declared dead.

He was a salesperson at the shop and a resident of Bandipora district.

The shop was re-opened in early 2019 after remaining closed for 29 years.

Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah, in a tweet, said, “The dastardly killing of Ibrahim is reprehensible & I unreservedly condemn it. Unfortunately, Ibrahim is the latest in a series of targeted killings in the valley, especially Srinagar. May Allah grant him a place in Jannat.”

Security forces have cordoned off the area to trace the attackers. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
