A total of seven civilians have been killed by terrorists in the Kashmir Valley in five days.
Of the seven, four were from minority communities and six of the deaths took place in Srinagar, the main urban centre of the Valley.
Supinder Kaur, a Srinagar-based Sikh, and Deepak Chand, a Hindu from Jammu, were killed two days after The Resistance Force, a shadow outfit of the banned Lashkar-e-Tayiba, claimed responsibility for the deaths of three people on Tuesday.
Makhan Lal Bindroo, a prominent Kashmiri Pandit and owner of Srinagar’s most famous pharmacy, was shot dead at his shop that evening. Minutes later, a ‘chaat’ vendor, Virendra Paswan from Bihar, was gunned elsewhere in Srinagar. Almost simultaneously, another civilian, Mohammad Shafi Lone, was killed at Naidkhai in Bandipora.
Security agencies have been given a free hand to take the strictest action against such people (terrorists). Those who have committed these crimes will soon be brought to justice, Jammu and Kashmir LG Manoj Sinha told ANI on recent terror attacks in Kashmir,
