In a tragic incident, a migrant worker from Bihar lost his life in a targeted terror attack in Bijbehara town, Anantnag district, Jammu and Kashmir. The victim, identified as Raju Shah, was shot at point-blank range on Wednesday night.

The Incident in Anantnag

According to police reports, the assailants opened fire on Raju Shah around 9:00 PM. Critically injured, he was immediately rushed to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. The attack occurred on the eve of filing nominations for the Anantnag-Rajouri Lok Sabha constituency. Notably, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and NC candidate Mian Altaf were scheduled to file their nomination papers on Thursday. Additionally, NC vice-president Omar Abdullah had planned a rally in Anantnag1.

Condemnation and Ongoing Investigation

All major political parties in the region have strongly condemned this act of violence. This incident marks the third such attack this year, highlighting the precarious security situation in the area. Authorities are conducting a search operation in the vicinity to apprehend the perpetrators.

The Anantnag-Rajouri Lok Sabha constituency is set to go to polls in the third phase on May 7. As the investigation unfolds, the loss of Raju Shah serves as a grim reminder of the challenges faced by migrant workers in conflict-affected regions.

This incident marks the latest in a string of attacks targeting migrant workers in Jammu and Kashmir this year. Just a week prior, a resident from Dehradun was shot in south Kashmir’s Herpora. In February, two workers from Punjab were killed in a terror attack in Srinagar with suspected links to Pakistan.

The recurring violence against migrant workers raises concerns about safety and stability in the region.

Our thoughts go out to Raju Shah’s family during this difficult time. May he rest in peace.
