Two teachers shot dead in Srinagar

A spree of civilian killings, seven in the past 10 days, has come at a time when Union ministers are on a nine-week outreach programme in Jammu and Kashmir.

Two teachers were shot dead inside a government school in Srinagar on Thursday, just two days after three civilians were killed within two hours in the Valley.

A police official said unknown gunmen barged into the Sangam Higher Secondary School near Safa Kadal in the old city and fired from a point blank at two teachers.

"Both the teachers were declared brought dead at a nearby hospital," officials said.

The victims were identified as Satinder Kaur and Deepak Chand, both residents of Allocha Bagh in Srinagar.

The police have reached the spot and an investigation is on "to establish the sequence of events". No militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.
