Shopian (J&K): One fruit merchant was killed and another injured after militants fired upon them at Trenz village in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir, the police said on Wednesday. The injured has been admitted to the hospital.
The fruit merchant belonged to Punjab.
This is the second incident on Wednesday when ‘non-Kashmiris’ were targeted by the militants.
In the morning on Wednesday, a labourer from Chhattisgarh was killed at a brick kiln in Pulwama district.
Police sources say this is emerging as a pattern to instil fear among the non-Kashmiris living in Jammu and Kashmir.
