Shooters pumped 15 projectiles into Shujaat Bukhari
Shujaat Bukhari, the Kashmiri daily paper manager who was murdered by shooters last night, was felled by 15 shots, the Jammu and Kashmir Police said.
Bukhari, 53, was the editorial manager of Rising Kashmir, and a previous Jammu and Kashmir journalist for The Hindu. He was leaving his office in Srinagar’s Press Enclave for an Iftar party when he was shot dead. Two of his Personal Security Officers were likewise murdered.
Afterward, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti attempted to keep down tears as she stated, “What would i be able to state. Just a couple of days back he had come to meet me.”
Shocked & deeply saddened by the sudden demise of Shujaat Bukhari. The scourge of terror has reared its ugly head on the eve of Eid. I strongly condemn this act of mindless violence & pray for his soul to rest in peace. My deepest condolences to his family.

Toward the end of last night, the state police discharged pictures of three bicycle borne men suspected to have killed Bukhari.
Furthermore, toward the beginning of today, the first page of Rising Kashmir’s every day version conveyed a full-page photo of Bukhari.
You exited very sudden, however you will dependably be our driving light with your expert conviction and commendable fearlessness. We won’t be cowed around the weaklings who grabbed you from us. We will maintain your standard of coming clean, howsoever unsavory it might be.
– A message distributed in the present version of Rising Kashmir
“The show must go on. As Shujaat would have needed it to,” Omar Abdullah, a previous Jammu and Kashmir boss clergyman, tweeted.
“That Shujaat’s partners could draw out the paper even with unconquerable distress is a demonstration of their polished methodology and the most fitting tribute to their late manager.”
