Srinagar: Srinagar Police on Friday released photos of three suspects involved in the murder of Rising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bukhari.

Kashmir’s senior journalist and his two personal security officers were shot dead on Thursday in the heart of Srinagar.

The police managed to obtain photos from CCTV footage of the suspects involved in the attack in Press Colony that killed the reputed journalist. The photos show three men on a motorbike with the rider’s face obscured by a helmet and one of the two pillion riders wearing a mask covering the lower half of his face.

Their description corresponds with that of eyewitnesses who reported seeing four men riding two motorcycles wearing helmets and shalwar kameez outside the office of Rising Kashmir near Lal Chowk at 7.30pm on Thursday just as Bukhari boarded his vehicle. The two pillion riders fired indiscriminately, they said, killing Bukhari and one of his security officers on the spot. The other security official died in hospital.
