Srinagar: 

A BJP leader, who was a sarpanch in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district, was shot dead by terrorists this morning, officials said.

Sajad Ahmad was shot dead in Kulgam, about 70 km from Srinagar.  He was BJP’s district vice president for Kulgam.

This is the fourth such attack on a BJP leader in the recent weeks.

Last month, BJP’s Sheikh Waseem Bari, his father and brother were killed by terrorists in the union territory’s Bandipore district. He was the district chief for Bandipore.

“Terrorists fired on BJP worker Wasim Bari at Bandipora. During indiscriminate firing Wasim Bari, his father Bashir Ahmad and brother Umer Bashir got injured and shifted to hospital, but all three succumbed to their injuries,” J&K Police had tweeted at the time.

A new terror group – The Resistance Front- had claimed responsibility for the attack. The police said it is a front of the Jaish, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Hizbul Mujahideen.

The terror attack was condemned by politicians across party lines. BJP chief JP Nadda said Mr Wasim’s death was a huge loss for the party. “This is a huge loss for the party. My deepest condolences are with the family. The entire Party stands with the bereaved family. I assure that their sacrifice will not go in vain,” he had tweeted.

The fear of being vulnerable to terrorist attacks has gripped mainstream political workers across parties in Kashmir after the killing in Bandipora.

In June, a Congress sarpanch Ajay Bharti was killed during a terror attack.
