Editor Shujaat Bhukhari shot dead Here's list of journalists killed by militants in Kashmir

Senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari has been shot dead by three bike-borne terrorists outside his office in Srinagar.

Shujaat Bukhari, editor of an English language daily Rising Kashmir, had just entered his vehicle outside his office in the city's press enclave when assailants fired several shots from close range.

"Along with Shujaat, his security chap was also killed and another lies injured in hospital".

Both the personal security officers also died of their injuries.

As per an official statement, Malik has said, "This attack on a saner Kashmiri voice is barbaric, gruesome and direct assault on freedom of speech and expression". "We will look into who these people are", J&K police chief added.

"I'm anguished to hear about the killing of Shujaat Bukhari, editor of Rising Kashmir".

Shujaat Bukhari was given police protection since an attack on him in 2000.

Sarah Sanders pressed on IG report, family separation at border
There will be even more people leaving the White House sooner rather than later, laid off or just leaving out of exhaustion. While Sanders didn't explicitly deny the report , she said that CBS didn't speak to her before running the story.

"Journalists working in Jammu and Kashmir have always been subject to a range of threats".

In the last hours before his death, Bukhari had tweeted about the United Nations report on human rights violations in Kashmir and India's rejection of the contents of the report.

"It is also why I will be urging the UN Human Rights Council to consider establishing a commission of inquiry to conduct a comprehensive independent worldwide investigation into allegations of human rights violations in Kashmir", said Zeid.

India's Interior Minister Rajnath Singh described him as a courageous and fearless journalist.

"Our heartfelt condolences and prayers are for their families. Only a few days ago he had come to meet me", an emotional Mufti said, struggling to hold back her tears. Media is free in India. The scribes from across the country expressed shock after the attack. His family members and well wishers condoled the shocking demise. "He will be missed".

Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said he was "deeply saddened" to learn about the "dastardly killing" of the veteran journalist.
