SRINAGAR (JAMMU AND KASHMIR): Terrorists on Sunday shot dead two poor labourers from Bihar and injured another on Sunday in Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, forcing police and security forces to cordon off the area.
Sources say the militants barged into the residence of the labourers and fired on them indiscriminately. The workers were living in a rented accommodation.
This is the third cowardly attack on civilians in less than 24 hours.
A poor street vendor from Bihar and a carpenter from Uttar Pradesh were gunned down by the terrorists on Saturday evening.
Several civilians have been targeted by terrorists in Kashmir in the last 10 days prompting the security forces to intensify its anti-terrorist operations.
On October 6, terrorists killed a popular pharmacy owner, M.L. Bindroo, a street vendor and a taxi driver.
Two days later, terrorists shot dead a school principal, Supinder Kour and teacher, Deepak Sharma in Eidgah area of Srinagar city.
A large section in Kashmir believes in its religious & racial supremacy. They look down on people from Bihar, UP & other parts of India. Their xenophobia is exposed. Poor Bihari labourers who built their homes, toilets & roads in Kashmir are being killed without remorse. Shame.
