Police broke the news on Twitter saying that militants have killed Mohammad Shafi Lone a resident of Naidkhai. Known to his friends and family as Sonu, Lone was President of Sumo Taxi Stand. He was killed at Shahgund.
Mohd Shafi Lone of Naidkhai becomes the third casualty this evening. He was shot dead a short while ago in Bandipore district of North Kashmir. Even the words of condemnation & condolence after these militant attacks start to sound hollow. May Allah grate the deceased Jannat.
