Shujaat Bukhari, veteran journalist and the editor-in-chief of Rising Kashmir, was shot dead Thursday. He was attacked outside his office in Press Colony, Srinagar and took multiple bullets. 

Two personal security officers also succumbed to injury, according to media reports. Bukhari was under police protection since an attack on him in 2000.

The killing came as a deep shock to the journalist fraternity. Even those outside condemned it widely, including Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and other politicians.
