The Union Territory has been rattled by attacks on migrant workers in recent months.
Last month a migrant labourer from Bihar was shot dead in Kashmir’s Bandipore, he was shifted to a hospital for treatment but he later died during treatment.
In June, terrorists fired on two migrant workers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam, killing one. The attack came hours after a bank manager at Elaquai Dehati Bank was shot dead inside the bank’s premises in the Kulgam district of Kashmir.
The bank manager was a native of Rajasthan and it was the eighth targeted killing in the valley in a month.
Since October 2019, non-local workers have often been targeted by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
