SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir Police said on Saturday that two civilians, both non-local labourers, were killed in separate targeted attacks by terrorists in Srinagar and Pulwama districts, adding that the respective areas have been cordoned off and a search is underway to hunt down the terrorists.
In a statement, the police said that gol gappa seller Arbind Kumar Sah, who hailed from Bihar's Banka, was killed by terrorists in Srinagar's Eidgah area at around 6.40 pm on Saturday.
This is the same area where the terrorists had gunned down Virendra Paswan, another street hawker, earlier this month.
Later, the terrorists opened fire at Sagir Ahmad, a resident of Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur, in the Pulwama district.
Ahmad was shifted to a local hospital for treatment where he succumbed to his injuries, the Jammu and Kashmir Police said.
