Kashmir Police releases the photo of 4th suspected terrorist in Shujaat Bukhari murder

The Jammu and Kashmir Police have released the photograph of a fourth suspected terrorist involved in the killing of Raising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bukhari and two police personnel employed for his protection. Bukhari was gunned down last night by armed terrorists inside his vehicle. Shujaat’s brother Bashrat Bukhari is a minister in the J&K government.

The police have requested the public to help identify the suspect. Earlier the police had released the CCTV images of 3 men riding a bike who were the suspected terrorists who gunned down Bukhari and his security men.

There were news reports claiming that Pakistan’s ISI has carried out the targeted killing through jihadi terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba. Kashmiri journalists had claimed that two of the suspected terrorists were LeT’s Fahad Waza and Mehrajuddin Bangroo.
