Srinagar: Suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants shot dead three civilians in the Old Town of Baramulla district in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday, police said.

The militants opened fire at the trio around 8.30 pm from a very close range in Iqbal Market at the Old Town, leaving them dead on the spot, the police said. The three persons, Asif Ahmad Sheikh, Haseeb Ahmad Khan and Mohmmad Asgar, all in their early 20s, were residents of Kakkar Hamam in Baramulla, a police official said.
