BUDGAM – A woman was killed and her 10-year-old nephew injured after they were fired upon by militants in the Chadoora area of central Kashmir’s Budgam district on Wednesday. Local reports claimed Amreen Bhat was a TV artiste and a singer who uploaded her songs on various social media platforms.
“At around 1955 hrs, militants fired upon one lady Amreen Bhat D/o Khazir Mohd Bhat R/o Hushroo Chadoora at her home. She was shifted to hospital in injured condition where doctors declared her dead. Her 10 year old nephew who was also at home received bullet injury on his arm,” the Jammu and Kashmir Police tweeted.
“Shocked & deeply saddened by the murderous militant attack on Ambreen Bhat. Sadly Ambreen lost her life in the attack & her nephew was injured. There can be no justification for attacking innocent women & children like this. May Allah grant her place in Jannat,” National Conference leader Omar Abdullah tweeted.
