Unidentified gunmen shot at and injured a Peoples Democratic Party worker in this south Kashmir district on Monday evening.
A police official said that the gunmen opened fire on Lateef Ahmad Shah son of Ghulam Muhammad Shah at his native village of Mitrigam at around 7 pm.
Shah sustained injuries in his abdomen and was immediately shifted to district hospital Pulwama from where he was sent to Srinagar, given the grave nature of his injuries, said the official.
He said that Shah was in his orchard when the assailants attacked him. The official said that Shah was an active member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Meanwhile, PDP in a tweet strongly condemned the attack on Shah. “Attacking political workers who dedicate their lives to the cause of serving common masses is an unfortunate act”, the party tweeted.
