A man who was allegedly shot at by suspected militants in Jammu and Kashmir’s summer capital on Saturday succumbed to his wounds, police officials said.
Majeed Guru was grievously injured in firing by unknown gunmen, suspected to be militants, at Karan Nagar on Saturday afternoon.
Guru, a resident of Chatabal in Srinagar, was fired from point-blank range and suffered injuries in the chest, face, and abdomen.
He was immediately rushed to nearby SMHS hospital nearby but succumbed to the wounds before he could be admitted there, they said.
Medical Superintendent SMHS hospital Dr. Kanwar Jeet Singh said that Guru was brought dead.
