Srinagar: Days after a school principal was shot dead in Jammu and Kashmir, a bank manager has been killed by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam. The police said the incident took place in Kulgam's Areh Mohanpora area. The victim was an employee of the Ellaquai Dehati Bank.
The victim was a resident of Rajasthan's Hanumangarh.

The man has been identified as Vijay Kumar. He was rushed to a hospital but succumbed on the way.
