Police sources told Free Press Kashmir that he has died.

Bukhari's killing sparked an outpouring of grief from prominent politicians and journalists alike - in India, Pakistan and in his home of Kashmir, the Muslim majority region divided between the two nuclear-armed neighbours. Bukhari was an extensively travelled journalist, who used to write in English, Kashmiri and Urdu. The scribes from across the country expressed shock after the attack. "My deepest condolences to his family", Mehbooba tweeted.

"This is why any resolution of the political situation in Kashmir must entail a commitment to end the cycles of violence and ensure accountability for past and current violations and abuses by all parties, and provide redress for victims", he said. It is an attempt to silence the saner voices of Kashmir. He was instrumental in organising several conferences for Kashmir peace.

Bukhari's final tweet, sent just a few hours before his murder, was a link to his website´s reporting of the United Nations human rights chief calling for a major investigation into abuses committed by India in Kashmir.
