Pulwama. In yet another attack on the Hindu community in the Kashmir Valley, terrorists shot dead a Kashmiri Hindu identified as Sanjay Sharma in Pulwama district on Sunday morning.
Sharma 40, a resident of Achan, Pulwama was fired upon by terrorists when he was on his way to the market. According to police, Sharma was immediately taken to the nearby hospital but he succumbed to the injuries. He was reportedly working as a security guard at a bank. There was an armed guard in his village for the protection of villagers, the police said. Soon after security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation to nab the killers.
Pertinently, Kashmir was rocked by a series of targeted killings last year by terrorists. Mostly among them were Kashmiri Hindus or migrant labourers. Killings had triggered a wave of protests by the Kashmiri Hindu community demanding safety and relocation to safer places.
