Bukhari, who was in his 50s, and his PSO were shot dead by unidentified gunmen outside the newspaper's office in the heart of this Jammu and Kashmir summer capital.
Deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic news of Shujaat Bukhari's killing! Such inhumanity is unpardonable and condemned in the strongest terms! Proud son of the soil his death is a huge loss, Mirwaiz tweeted.
My heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family. Pray to almighty for his 'magfirat' (forgiveness) and place in Jannat (heaven), Mirwaiz said.
