The death of a civilian within 24 hours of a militant attack that killed a police constable has shocked the valley in Jammu and Kashmir, leaving politicians and locals outraged. According to reports, militants on Monday shot dead a civilian in the Bohri Kadal area in Srinagar, the second attack carried out by the ultras in the city in the past 24-hours.

The victim, Mohammad Ibrahim Khan, was a resident of Bandipora district and worked as a salesman at a Kashmiri Pundit shop in the Maharajgunj area. Militants allegedly fired upon Khan at 8 pm on Monday Bohri Kadal. While the victim was immediately rushed to a hospital, he remained in a critical condition and succumbed to his injuries later in the night.

The officials said security forces have cordoned off the area to trace the attackers.

Khan’s killing was the second attack by the militants in the city in the past 24 hours. A policeman was shot dead in the Batamaloo area on Sunday evening.

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah condemned the killing of the civilian.

"The dastardly killing of Ibrahim is reprehensible & I unreservedly condemn it. Unfortunately, Ibrahim is the latest in a series of targeted killings in the valley, especially Srinagar. May Allah grant him place in Jannat," Omar tweeted.
