Including this total death toll of civilians rises to at least 11 in only October itself, apart from this, some security personnel have also been shot dead.

As per reports, on Sunday, terrorists opened fire at the labourers at Vanpoh in Kulgam district, in which two migrant workers – Raja Reshi dev & Joginder Reshi – from Bihar died on the spot and Chun Chun Reshi was injured in the attack. The Jammu and Kashmir police blamed this attack on separatist militants and said that the victims were targeted by them in Kulgam district.
