2 Drivers Shot Dead By militants In Shopian, Truck Set On Fire

NEW DELHI: Two truck drivers who had come to transport apples in Kashmir’s Shopian district were shot dead by militants this evening and their truck was set on fire. Another truck driver was injured in the attack.
The latest attack comes a week after an apple trader was shot dead by militants in the same district, which was the third such killing in three days in the Kashmir valley. Militans had killed a labourer and a man from Rajasthan who was driving a truck from an orchard.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Police say the militants are acting in desperation as transportation of fruit has picked up in Kashmir valley.
Sources said the militants have been targeting labourers, who have come to Jammu and Kashmir from outside the state, to create fear among them and disrupt trade.
