Srinagar: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today
condemned the brutal killing of President of Sopore traders
federation Ghulam Nabi Khan this morning.
Terming his killing as a "barbaric and cowardly" act,
Abdullah said those forces who are not happy with the peace
and tranquillity of the state have an agenda to target
popular personalities like Khan.
Unknown gunmen sprayed bullets on Khan, 42, in the main
chowk of Sopore at around 11 am.
A hunt has been launched to nab the culprits. No militant
outfit has so far claimed responsibility for the act.
