IANS  |  Srinagar 

Unidentified gunmen on Saturday shot dead a shopkeeper in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla town.

Police said the assailants targeted Arjumand Majid Bhat, firing several shots.

"Majid Bhat, also known as Raju Mistry, died on the spot," a police officer said. He belonged to Khwaja Bagh area of Baramulla town.

Only three months back, the police had declared Baramulla a militant free district.

On Friday, militants shot and critically injured another shopkeeper in Tral area of south Kashmir's Pulwama district.
