An Imam was shot at and killed in south Kashmir's Pulwama town on Friday evening.
The incident came hours after a police official was shot at and killed in the town’s busy market place.
A senior police officer said militants fired at Imam Mudasir Ahmed Mir from a close range while he was leaving the mosque at Lassipora in Pulwama after offering late night prayers.
“Mir succumbed to his injuries on the spot,” the officer said.
Police rushed to the spot immediately and the area was searched. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the killing.
Hizbul Mujaheedin has claimed responsibility for the fatal attack on Police Officer Farooq Ahmad Sheikh.
