A woman was killed on Tuesday after being hit by a stray bullet in Batmaloo locality in Srinagar when security forces fired in air to disperse a mob which went on a rampage and attacked a police building in the area.

The 25-year-old woman was hit while she was watching the incident from the window of her home, senior police officials said quoting preliminary information.

The mob had attacked the police quarters located in the area after torching its welfare centre.

With this, the number of people killed in alleged police firing today has risen to two.
