The killings are not stopping in Srinagar

A shop worker has been killed in another terrorist incident in Srinagar. Questions are being raised as to how such killings are happening again and again despite the presence of thousands of security personnel in the city. Mohammad Ibrahim Khan, who worked in the shop, was shot dead. The incident happened when not even 24 hours had elapsed since the killing of a policeman by terrorists in Batmaloo area of ​​Srinagar. Ibrahim Khan was 45 years old and belonged to Ashtingu village of Bandipur. The shop was open after 29 years, the police said in their statement, “Preliminary investigation has revealed that the terrorists opened fire on a civilian…he was admitted to a nearby hospital in critical condition where he died”. Police also said that searches are going on in the area. It has been told in the media reports that the shop where Ibrahim used to work was closed for 29 years and was re-opened in 2019 itself.


Shop owner Roshan Lal Mawa had moved to Delhi in the 1990s with the onset of militancy in the Valley. He had come back to Srinagar in May 2019. On Ibrahim’s killing, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted that the incident was condemnable and “unfortunately part of a series of targeted killings in the Valley”. A day before this murder, 29-year-old police constable Tauseef Ahmed Wani was shot dead in Batmaloo area of ​​Srinagar itself. Even before this, many people have been killed in Srinagar and some other areas of Kashmir, in which at least 11 civilians have been killed so far. Following these incidents, the central government sent 5,000 additional personnel of paramilitary forces to the Valley. Srinagar is on high alert since last month. Already thousands of security personnel are deployed in the city. It is astonishing that even after this, how terrorists are carrying out such killings without fear.
