The deceased was a Muslim labourer from Bihar. The attack comes ahead of the fourth anniversary of the abrogation of article 370, which falls on August 5.

“The deceased labourer has been identified as Mohd Mumtaz, a resident of Sakwa Parsa in Bihar. The injured have been identified as Mohd Arif and Mohd Majbool, residents of Rampur in Bihar. Their condition is stable,” police said.

The area has been cordoned off. Militants had stepped up attacks on non-local labourers earlier this year but there was a halt in such targeted killings for the past nearly two months.
