Srinagar: An 18-year-old boy in North Kashmir's Sopore town was shot dead in a mosque on Tuesday night.

Sopore Superintendent of Police Syed Imtiyaz Hussain told IANS Wednesday: "Suhail Ahmad Sofi, resident of Doabgah area of Sopore, was sitting with another boy in the grounds near the local mosque when unidentified militants fired at him.

"However, Suhail escaped the bullets and ran into the mosque. One militant chased him and fired five shots at the boy inside the mosque. Suhail died on the spot. We have registered a case in this regard and investigations have started."

Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted: "Militants chase an 18-year-old boy into a mosque and shoot him. Imagine the outrage if this had been done by security forces #hypocrisy".

Sources say that the preliminary investigation suggests that the teen was shot by members of the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba
