BJP constituency in-charge killed in J&K, second terror hit on party in 10 days | India News – Times of India


SRINAGAR: Terrorists in J&K shot dead BJP’s Kulgam constituency in-charge on Tuesday, less than 10 days after two Lashkar-e-Taiba gunmen barged into an unprotected house in Anantnag to kill a sarpanch from the saffron party and his panchayat member wife.
The fatal attack on Javeed Ahmad Dar took place outside his residence in the Barzloo Jageer area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam, taking the number of political functionaries and workers killed since August 2019 to over 40. BJP has suffered the highest number of 20 casualties in terror attacks during this period.
BJP spokesperson Altaf Thakur termed Javeed’s killing “barbaric”. National Conference vice-president and former CM Omar Abdullah and People’s Conference chief Sajad Lone took to Twitter to condemn the latest political killing in the Valley. “Terrible news from Kulgam. Javved Ahmed was gunned down in cold blood. I unreservedly condemn this terror attack..” Omar wrote, without mentioning the party to which the victim belonged.
On August 9, sarpanch Ghulam Rasool Dar of Kulgam’s Redwani panchayat and his wife and colleague Jawahira Begum were in their rented Anantnag home without their personal security officer when a Lashkar duo shot them dead. They had been living in a secure government-provided hotel until recently.
