SRINAGAR: Unidentified terrorists shot dead an advocate in Hawal area of the Srinagar on Thursday, police said.

The ultras fired upon advocate Babar Qadri at his Hawal residence around 6:25 pm from close range before fleeing the spot, a police official said.

Qadri, in his early 40s, was rushed to the SKIMS hospital, where doctors declared him 'dead on arrival', according to the official.

The advocate, who used to appear on TV debates and write opinion pages for local newspapers, was not liked by separatist circles.

Three days ago, he had tweeted a screenshot and urged the police in Jammu to register an FIR against a Facebook user for spreading "wrong campaign" against him.


 

The advocate becomes second political or social activist to be shot dead by terrorists in the past 24 hours.

Bhupinder Singh, a member of the block development council in Khag area of Budgam district, was shot dead by militants at his ancestral village Dalwash on Wednesday night.
