Political leaders across party lines and journalists condemned the killing of senior journalist and editor of Rising Kashmir Shujaat Bukhari in Srinager on Thursday.

One of his guards was also killed in the attack and another is critically injured, police told the BBC. There was no immediate word from police on the identity or possible motive of the gunmen.

"The political dimensions of the dispute between India and Pakistan have always been centre-stage, but this is not a conflict frozen in time".

India had suspended operations against militants fighting its rule in Kashmir during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan which began last month, after weeks of sporadic violence there.

As per reports, Bukhari was shot multiple times outside his office in Press Avenue, which is regarded as one of the busiest areas in the city.

Frontline Editor R Vijaysankar said Bukhari's shocking demise was a great loss to the world of journalism.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti confirmed the death of the veteran scribe on Twitter and said that she was saddened and "shocked" by the "scourge of terror". "Justice will be done". He was also part of the Track II diplomacy process with Pakistan.

Bukhari, who earlier worked as The Hindu's Kashmir correspondent, was instrumental in organising several conferences for peace in the Valley.

Condemnation of his killing in Srinagar, the summer capital of India's Jammu and Kashmir state, and condolences poured in from across the country.

Bukhari, who had a distinguishable tall frame and husky voice, said in another tweet, "In #Kashmir we have done Journalism with pride and will continue to highlight what happens on ground".

The 49-page report - the first ever issued by the United Nations on the human rights situation in Indian-Administered and Pakistan-Administered Kashmir - details human rights violations and abuses on both sides of the Line of Control, and highlights a situation of chronic impunity for violations committed by security forces.
