In another case of targeted killings, a bank manager from Rajasthan was shot dead by a terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam.

This comes as the second targeted attack on Hindus in the Valley in the last three days.

A terrorist broke through the Areh branch of Elaqahi Dehati Bank and shot Vijay Kumar, the bank manager.

As per the CCTV footage, the killer entering the branch fires a shot and flees soon. Vijay Kumar was being rushed to the hospital when he breathed his last.

Kumar was a resident of Hanumangarh district in Rajasthan. He had recently joined his posting in Kulgam.

As per the Police, the area has been cordoned off and efforts are on to track down and nab the terrorists behind the attack.

The attack comes just two days after a Hindu teacher from Jammu, Rajni Bala, was killed by terrorists outside a school in Kulgam only.

Also, the bank manager’s killing in Kulgam came within just 24 hours of two major incidents in the adjoining Shopian district. A civilian was also injured in a targeted terror attack inside his home last evening.

On the other hand, another incident left three soldiers injured after an explosion in their vehicle early Thursday morning. One of the soldiers has suffered critical injuries.
