Srinagar/UNI: A driver from Punjab who was working in the valley was wounded in yet another targeted attack on non locals by militants in south Kashmir's Pulwama district, officials said.

They said unknown gunmen fired upon driver Sonu Sharma a resident of Pathankot Punjab at Yader Pulwama Thursday evening.

“The injured was shifted by locals to district hospital Pulwama,” an official said, adding the driver has bullet injuries on his right thigh.

Senior security officials have rushed to the area.

Security officials believe the attacks are apparently aimed at driving away migrant workers from Kashmir.

“The terrorist want to create fear among non locals by targeted attacks,” a security official said.

Seven non locals and a Kashmir Pandit have been targeted in the south Kashmir districts of Pulwama and Shopian in over a fortnight.
