Non Local Killed, Police

SRINAGAR: A non-resident is reported to have been killed in Lal Bazar. Police have confirmed the killing.

Holding militants responsible for the killing, police have identified the slain non-resident civilian as Virender Paswan, a resident of Bhagalpur (Bihar), a street hawker. He was residing at Alamgiri Bazaar, Zadibal. Police said a search operation is in progress.

This is the second killing this evening. Earlier, unknown gunmen killed a prominent chemist Makhan Lal Bindroo at his chemist shop near Iqbal Park Srinagar. An injured Bindroo was driven to the hospital but he succumbed midway. Police have started searches in the area.

Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesman for J&K Altaf Thakur has strongly condemned the killing of famous Chemist M L Bindro at his shop near Iqbal Park, Srinagar by militants stating that the slain was helpful, sober and pro-poor who always cared for the poor.

In a brief statement, Thakur said those behind the killing of Bindro have no religion as killing of unarmed persons is never justified in any religion. “I express my solidarity with the family members of Bindro and urge police to expose and punish his killers, sooner the better,” Thakur said.
