Suspected militants kill 2 teachers at school in Kashmir
CA, 07 Oct 2021
Suspected militants shot and killed two teachers in a government school in Kashmir's main city of Srinagar on Thursday, in the latest in a spate of targeted killings in the heavily militarized Himalayan region.
Gunmen stormed into the Government Boys Higher Secondary School in Srinagar's Eidgah area and shot two teachers at close range, a government official said. The victims were members of the region's minority Sikh and Hindu communities, the official said.
Jammu and Kashmir Police Chief Dilbag Singh said recent killings in Srinagar had been carried out by The Resistance Front, a militant group that has claimed some of the previous assassinations in the Kashmir valley.
In the last week, seven civilians have been killed in Kashmir, three of them from the Hindu and Sikh communities.
