BUDGAM: A shopkeeper was seriously injured after unknown assailants on late Wednesday night attacked him with a sharp-edged weapon in Zoogipora Khag in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district and looted cash from him.

A Police official told that prima facie it seems that assailants attacked the shopkeeper to loot a cash-filled bag from him.

He said the shopkeeper identified as Ghulam Muhammad Shah (56) closed down his shop at Khandaypora village and was on his way to home at Zogipora village when assailants attacked him and snatched the cash-filled bag.

The shopkeeper sustained critical injuries and was immediately shifted to Sub-District Hospital Beerwah where doctors referred him to Srinagar for further treatment.
