Before his inauguration on January 20, Trump lived and worked at his Manhattan headquarters Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. That figure more than doubles to an average cost of $308,000 per day whenever the president is in town.
Soon after the attack, police had arrested a Pakistani national and member of LeT, later identified as Mohammad Naveed alias Usman. The cordon and search operation followed Intelligence inputs about the presence of militants and foreign terrorists, in the area, an official said.
According to eyewtnesses, as the funeral procession was moving, four militants with assault rifles fired shots in the air, according to Indian Express.
It was the third militant attack in South Kashmir within a week.
He said the police also managed to snatch a pistol from one of the terrorists involved in the attack. More than 500,000 Indian soldiers are deployed in Kashmir regularly to crack down on civilians.
The attack came hours after the government suspended cash transactions at almost 40 branches in sensitive areas of Pulwama and Shopian districts in South Kashmir. Security forces have launched a massive manhunt in South Kashmir, especially in Shopian district, against the terrorists who are carrying out these attacks.
