In yet another attack on a migrant worker in Jammu and Kashmir, a labourer identified as Muneerul Islam, who is said to hail from West Bengal, was injured when suspected terrorists opened fire upon him in the Ugergund Newa area of South Kashmir’s Pulwama area on the morning of Friday, September 2.

According to the police, Islam was shifted to the district hospital and is said to be stable. Security forces have cordoned off the area where the attack took place.

Migrant workers, Kashmiri Pandits and members of the minority Hindu community have been constantly in the crosshairs of terrorists in Kashmir, with a spate of killings taking place here since October 2021.

The first migrant worker to be targeted was Virendar Paswan, who hailed from Bhagalpur in Bihar and worked as street food vendor. He was killed on October 5, 2021.

In June, terrorists shot at two migrant labourers from Bihar – Dilkhush Kumar and Guri, who were working as brick kiln labourers in Magraypora in Chadoora. While Guri survived, Dilkhush died.

In August 2022, Mohammed Amrez became the fourth migrant worker from Bihar to be killed by suspected terrorists. The labourer hailed from Madhepura.
