Desperate not to let anybody domiciled outside Kashmir enter, work and settle in the Valley, terrorists on Tuesday killed five non-Kashmiri labourers in Kulgam, Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. One more labourer hit by terrorists’ bullets has been admitted to the hospital in Anantnag in an injured condition.

Police reached the spot after the incident and are investigating the case. India Army’s 18th Battalion and Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel reached the spot to cordon the area and conduct intensive searches.

All the workers killed are residents of Murshidabad of West Bengal.

According to the news agency ANI, the school had been designated as an examination centre where unidentified assailants fired six to seven rounds at the soldiers stationed at Drabgam. However, no one was reported injured in the attack.
