Two days after the serial blasts in Srinagar, four young people -- two boys and two girls -- were gunned down by terrorists in Magnar village in Poonch district late on Wednesday night.

A senior police officer said the terrorists opened indiscriminate fire in the village killing Lokesh Kumar (20), Pankaj Kumar (17), Priyanka Sharma (18) and Meenakshi Sharma (8).

The mother and sister of the two slain girls, who were seriously wounded in the shooting, have been taken to hospital.

Inspector General of Police, Jammu zone, Dr S P Vaid said the police have launched a massive hunt for the killers.

Tuesday's serial blasts in Srinagar killed nine people including seven Bengali tourists. Over 50 others were wounded in the grenade attacks.
