SRINAGAR: Assailants shot and killed three men in separate incidents in Indian-occupied Kashmir late on Tuesday, police said, blaming anti-India fighters for the string of attacks.
In the first incident, the assailants fired at a prominent chemist, Makhan Lal Bindroo, at his pharmacy in Srinagar.
Bindroo, a Kashmiri Hindu, was taken to a hospital where he died, police said, adding that Indian forces cordoned off the area and launched a manhunt.
Within an hour, a street food vendor was shot point-blank in another neighborhood in Srinagar, killing him on the spot. In the third incident, gunmen fatally shot a taxi driver in the northern Hajin area. Last week, assailants fatally shot two men in Srinagar.
