Srinagar: Militants shot dead a civilian in Kulgam district of south Kashmir on Wednesday, officials said here.
The man was identified as Satish Kumar Singh, a Rajput.
He was rushed to a local hospital where doctors referred him to a facility in Srinagar in view of his critical condition.
The attack took place at Pumbai in Kulgam district at around 7.30 pm, the officials said.
Kulgam and Shopian districts have small pockets with Rajput families who have never migrated out of Jammu and Kashmir. They are mainly into apple business.
Meanwhile, officials said that the injured man was immediately shifted to a nearby hospital for treatment, the officer said. Later he was shifted to SKIMS here.
“He was brought dead to SKIMS,” a senior doctor at the Valley’s tertiary care hospital here said. The man had gunshot injury to the head, the doctor said. “He was brought to hospital in unconscious state. He had no central pulse or peripheral pulses,” the doctor added.
“Civilian Satesh Kumar Singh, a resident of Kulgam, succumbed to his injuries at hospital. (Militants) involved in this gruesome crime will be neutralised soon,” police said in a tweet, adding, “Search to track the involved (militants is) in progress.” (with inputs from GNS)
