One killed as militants attack liquor shop in Srinagar

Srinagar, Nov 16:  One person was killed and four others were injured when unidentified militants Thursday fired at the salesmen of a liquor shop in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir Police said.


A police officer told IANS: "Unidentified militants fired at the salesmen of a liquor shop in Boulevard Road area of the city this evening."

"Five people were injured in the firing. One of the injured, identified as Mushtaq Ahmad of Aluchibagh locality of Srinagar city, has succumbed to injuries while four others injured are being treated in the hospital," he said.

The wine shop is located inside a local hotel complex on the Boulevard Road on the bank of the Dal Lake - a tourist hub.

Following diktats of some separatist groups in the early 1990s all the wine shops, cinema halls and beauty parlours were closed in the valley.

As normalcy gradually returns to Kashmir, some wine shops have reopened in the city, along with some beauty parlours.

But, the owners of cinema halls in the city have been converting their establishments into hospitals and shopping malls instead of restarting their movie theatres.
