Pulwama: Unidentified gunmen, suspected to be militants, on Monday evening shot at and injured a non-local labourer in Pulwama district of south Kashmir.
Official sources said that the gunmen fired upon non-local labour Bisujeet Kumar son of Paras Mandan of Bihar at Gangoo Pulwama, leaving him injured.
He was shifted to district hospital Pulwama, they said. A police officer said that Kumar has fire injuries in his back and will be likely shifted to Srinagar for specialized treatment.
Pertinently, this is the second incident of civilians being fired by unidentified gunmen in Kashmir today.
Earlier, a police officer said that the civilian identified as Tajamul Mohi-ud-Din Rather was fired upon by militants near his home at Gotpora Budgam this evening.
He was shifted to the hospital but died before he could receive any treatment, sources said.
