SRINAGAR: Terrorists on Wednesday evening shot dead famous Kashmiri television artist Ambreen Bhat in the Chadoora area of Budgam. Her 10-year-old nephew also got injured in the incident but his condition is said to be stable.
Incidentally, it was in the same area where on May 12 terrorists shot dead Rahul Bhat, a Kashmiri Pandit working in the tehsil office, inside his office.
Terrorists fired upon Bhat, a TV artist and a singer, and her 10-year-old nephew outside their home in the Hishroo area of Chadoora town.
Both of them were immediately taken to Chadoora hospital. However, Ambreen was shifted to SMHS hospital, where she was declared brought dead. Her nephew has received injuries in the arm.
“At around 1955 hrs, terrorists fired upon one lady Amreen Bhat D/o Khazir Mohd Bhat R/o Hushroo Chadoora at her home. She was shifted to hospital in injured condition where doctors declared her dead. Her 10 year old nephew who was also at home received bullet injury on his arm (sic),” the Jammu and Kashmir Police tweeted.
“Three terrorists of proscribed terror outfit LeT were involved in this heinous terror incident. Area has been cordoned off and search started. Case registered and investigation on (sic),” Kashmir Zone Police tweeted.
“Shocked & deeply saddened by the murderous militant attack on Ambreen Bhat. Sadly Ambreen lost her life in the attack & her nephew was injured. There can be no justification for attacking innocent women & children like this. May Allah grant her place in Jannat,” National Conference leader Omar Abdullah tweeted.
