Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], June 14 (ANI): Shujaat Bukhari, editor of Rising Kashmir newspaper, was shot dead by terrorists in Press Colony in Jammu and Kashmir's Srinagar on Thursday. "Bukhari and one guard were killed and another security guard critically injured", he said. "My deepest condolences to his family", Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said.
Bukhari was the editor of Kashmiri newspaper Rising Kashmir. The scourge of terror has reared its ugly head on the eve of Eid.
Such gruesome violence during the holy month of Ramzan and on the eve of Eid is a chilling reminder of the fact that Kashmir is one of the most risky places not just for the security forces but for peace crusaders and journalists too. He was a globe-trotter, travelling frequently even to Pakistan, and is believed to have engaged in some "peace initiative" on Kashmir.
The Editors Guild of India tweeted that it "unequivocally condemns the assassination" and termed it a "grave attack on press freedom and democratic voices".

Jammu and Kashmir Governor NN Vohra called it "a big loss to the media fraternity". In another tweet he quoted UNHRC's first-ever report on human rights situation in Kashmir.
