Faced with killings of two more non-locals, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has asked all its district chiefs to gather non-resident labourers and bring them to the nearest security camps "immediately", officials said on Sunday.

The move comes after militants gunned down two labourers and critically wounded another one in Kulgam in South Kashmir on Sunday evening.
