Hindustan Times Delhi|December 23, 2021
A civilian and a police officer were killed in two separate targeted terror attacks in the Kashmir valley on Wednesday evening, police said.

SRINAGAR: These were the latest in a spate of attacks on civilians and minorities over the past three months by small terror modules that have brought back memories of targeted killings that were reported in Kashmir at the start of militancy in the early 1990s.

The civilian, Rouf Ahmad, 45, was shot at by unidentified gunmen in the Eidgah area of Srinagar. He was rushed to hospital, where he succumbed to injuries. He worked as a property dealer.

“Terrorists fired upon a civilian Rouf Ahmad at Merjanpora, Eidgah PS Safakadal Srinagar. The injured was shifted to SMHS hospital where he was declared dead. Case registered, investigation going on,” a J&K police spokesman said in an official release. The incident took place at 5:25pm, police said.

In another attack, later in the evening, unidentified gunmen fired at a police officer near the Bijbehara police station in Anantnag.
