In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, a J&K Police constable was fired upon by terrorists this morning at Gudoora village in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
Police in a tweet said that the injured Police Constable identified as Reyaz Ahmad Thoker was immediately rushed to district hospital Pulwama. However, he succumbed to injuries in the hospital.
The area was cordoned off by the security forces and a massive manhunt has been launched to nab the assailants involved.
This is the second terror attack by terrorists in the Kashmir Valley in less than 24 hours. Earlier, one Kashmiri Pandit employee Rahul Bhat was shot dead in his office at Tehsil Office in Chadoora Budgam last evening.
Migrant Kashmiri Pandits (KPs), majority of the government employees working under Prime Minister’s Rehabilitation Package, have registered their strong protest outside Vessu Qazigund Migrant Camp on Jammu Srinagar National Highway, Sheikhpora Badgam, and Indra Nagar in Srinagar against the killing of their colleague Rahul Bhat at Chadoora, Budgam. Hundreds of the protestors also blocked the Srinagar-Jammu highway outside Vessu migrant KP Colony Qazigund and Indra Nagar in Srinagar to protest against the barbaric killing. They also lit candles to register their protest.
