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.
