Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Police’s State Investigation Agency (SIA) on Tuesday carried out searches in several locations in south Kashmir in the ongoing investigation into the killing of Kashmiri Pandit earlier this year, officials said.

Kashmiri Pandit Sanjay Sharma, who worked as an ATM guard, was shot dead by suspected militants in the Achan area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 26.

The case of Sharma’s killing was initially investigated by the Pulwama Police, and subsequently it was transferred to the SIA Kashmir.

Officials said the raids began early in the morning in the south Kashmir districts of Shopian, Kulgam, and Anantnag.

“The latest searches were carried out in pursuance of search warrants issued by the Special Court,” they said.
