According to police, at about 11:15 am, terrorists shot dead two school teachers. The area has been cordoned off and a hunt has been launched to nail the attackers.
"Two teachers killed in a terrorist attack at a government school in the Iddgah Sangam area of Srinagar," the Jammu and Kashmir Police said in a statement.
Reports say that the slain teachers are the principal of the school, Supinder Kaur and a Kashmiri Pandit teacher, Deepak Chand.
Today's killings come two days after the terrorists shot a local Pandit, ML Bindroo, a non-local vendor and a taxi driver in Kashmir.
Meanwhile, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti tweeted that the Centre's claim of 'Naya Kashmir has turned it into a hellhole'. "Disturbing to see the deteriorating situation in Kashmir where a minuscule minority is the latest target. GOI’s claims of building a Naya Kashmir has actually turned it into a hellhole. It’s sole interest is to use Kashmir as a milch cow for its electoral interests," she tweeted.
