A police officer said gunmen fired at the victim near the main bus stand in Sopore, 54 km from here. Fayaz Ahmad died instantly.
A Lok Janshakti Party leader, Feroze Ahmad, who witnessed the firing, suffered a massive heart attack and later died in hospital.
Doctors in the sub-district hospital referred Feroze Ahmad to Srinagar for specialised treatment. However, he couldn’t be revived here also by the doctors and died.
Meanwhile, an army trooper was killed and another wounded when separatist guerrillas ambushed a 21-Rashtriya Rifles (RR) patrol in the Rajawar forest area of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district during a search operation.
