Jammu Kashmir: Terrorists open fire at a non-local couple; kill an ex-sarpanch

Anantnag: A former sarpanch was killed, and a couple from Rajasthan's Jaipur was injured in two separate incidents of terrorist firing in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, just two days before polling.

The couple from Jaipur sustained injuries after being shot by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag on Saturday.

They were promptly rushed to a hospital in a critical condition.

"Terrorists fired upon and injured a lady, Farha, a resident of Jaipur, and her spouse, Tabrez, at Yannar, Anantnag. The injured were evacuated to the hospital for treatment. The area was cordoned off," Kashmir Zone Police tweeted.

The area where the attack occurred was cordoned off, and security forces arrived at the scene to conduct an investigation. A search and combing operation was launched to locate the terrorists responsible for the attack.

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and People's Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti condemned the attack on non-locals.

This incident is the most recent in a series of attacks on non-locals in Jammu and Kashmir in recent months.

The other two attacks occurred in April in the Shopian district and in February in Srinagar.

In both cases, non-locals were targeted by terrorists.
