Srinagar: A 36-year-old businessman was shot dead by unidentified gunmen on Sunday evening at Sopore. A day after as there was no protest over the killing, an angry Chief Minister Omar Abdullah termed it “hypocrisy”, saying the man was killed “for no apparent fault of his”. “A young man was shot dead in Sopore yesterday for no apparent fault of his. Where the hell are all the irate voices??? Bloody hypocrites,” the CM tweeted on Monday morning on the micro-blogging site. On Sunday evening, unidentified gunmen shot at Mohsin Ahmad Wani, a resident of Jalalabad, Sopore, from a close range at Kralteng locality. Wani was rushed to the hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead. The police have blamed militants for the killing. “Unknown militants fired upon Wani at Kralteng resulting in his death on the spot,” a police spokesman said. He added that Wani, a resident of Jalalabad on the outskirts of Sopore, was putting up at a rented accommodation in Kralteng, where he was shot at. “The police have registered a case in this regard,” he said. Police sources said there was no apparent cause behind the killing. They, however, said that Wani was buying diesel and petrol from the Army and selling it to the people. Reacting to the “silence” of his followers on twitter, the CM tweeted: “Mohsin was a businessman, doing business in Sopore. Shot by militants last night. No wonder my TL is silent as it wasn’t by Army-police.”
