The victim who was identified as Nigeena Bano died on the spot while another civilian named Mohammad Sultan suffered serious injuries. He was referred to Srinagar hospital where he is currently being treated for his injuries.
“Both the civilians received critical gunshot wounds. Both were evacuated to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. However, Nigeena Bano succumbed to her injuries,” a police official confirmed.
Innocent civilians and security personnel have become easy and frequent targets for terrorist attacks in the state. A Special Police of Officer (SPO) of J&K police named Khushboo Jan was shot dead by terrorists in March this year in a similar style. A few days later in the same month, a 24-year old man from Bemnipora in Shopian was brutally killed by terrorists. The body of the victim identified as Tanveer Ahmed Dar was found in Kachdoora.
