Two government school teachers, including a woman, were shot dead by terrorists in the Eidgah area of Srinagar on Thursday, October 7.

Just 36 hours earlier, on Tuesday, October 5, Makhan Lal Bindroo, owner of Srinagar's best known pharmacy, Bindroo Medicare, was shot dead at point-blank range.

A few minutes after Mr Bindroo was shot, terrorists gunned down a roadside vendor identified as Virendra Paswan, a resident of Bhagalpur in Bihar.

Almost simultaneously, terrorists shot dead Mohammad Shafi Lone, president of the local taxi stand, at Naidkhai in Bandipora district in north Kashmir.

After the teachers were killed, security personnel swarmed all over the crime scene, but the murderers have yet to be arrested.
