Jammu and Kashmir: Terrorists kill a 65-year-old shopkeeper for keeping his shop open in Srinagar

Three motorbike-borne terrorists shot at Ghulam Mohammad when he was closing down his shop

A 65-year-old man was been killed after some unidentified terrorists opened fire at him on Thursday night in the Parimpora region on the outskirts of Srinagar for keeping his shop open, creating panic and tensions in the city.

According to the reports, the incident took place in Parimpora area when the attackers carrying a pistol fired at the shopkeeper from point-blank range. The police are yet to find the identity of the terrorists.

According to Jammu and Kashmir Police, as the terrorists shot at the shopkeeper, a police team was immediately rushed to the spot and the entire area was cordoned off. A search has also been launched by the security forces to nab the terrorists. The injured civilian was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

According to eyewitnesses, three motorbike-borne terrorists shot at Ghulam Mohammad when he was closing down his shop. He was killed for keeping his shop open, said an eyewitness according to ToI report.

The killing of the shopkeeper in Srinagar city was first such incident to occur after the historic abrogation of Article 370. As Kashmir is returning to normalcy post the revocation of special status, the Pakistan-sponsored terrorists seem to have carried out this cowardly terrorist attack out of desperation.

Earlier last week, a  42-year-old truck driver Noor Mohammed Dar, a resident of the same Zradipora Uranhall locality in Bijbehara in Anantnag district, was targeted and killed by stone-pelters.

The valley has been mostly calm after the abrogation of Article 370 which revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s separate status and made it an integral part of the country. The government of India even bifurcated the erstwhile state into two union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. The move of the government has been largely welcomed by Indians.
