Srinagar: A 40 year-old businessman was on Tuesday shot dead by suspected militants in Pulwama district of south Kashmir, officials said.
Aijaz Ahmad Shah was shot by unidentified pistol-borne militants inside his house at village Shubdani-Newa, 35km from here, around 11.30 am, they said, adding the trader was rushed to a hospital where he was declared brought dead.
The motive behind Shah`s killing was not known immediately, they added.
