SRINAGAR: J-K Police today released a screen grab showing a suspect in connection with the killing of journalist Shujaat Bukhari and his two personal guards here yesterday and have sought help of general public in identifying him.
The police issued the picture from a video, which was purportedly recorded by a passerby following the attack on Bukhari outside his office, showing a bearded man surveying the inside of the journalist's vehicle.
As a man pulls out Bukhari's guard, the suspect is seen picking up his pistol and disappearing from the scene right under the nose of the cops there.
Late last night, police had issued two photographs of three-motorcycle borne suspects that were taken from the CCTV footage.
However, their faces were not visible.
While the driver was wearing a helmet, one of the pillion riders had used a face mask to conceal his identity.
The face of the third assailant, sitting in the middle, did not seem to be covered but he was leaning towards the other side so as not to be captured on the CCTV.
"In connection with (yesterday's) terror attack at Srinagar's Press enclave, police requests general public to identify the suspects for the purpose of police investigation," a police spokesman said.
Urging the public to pass the information about the identity of the assailants to local police, the spokesman said the name of the person providing any clue or information regarding the suspects will be kept confidential.
