Thursday, 6th August 2020

Jammu Kashmir village Sarpanch Sajad Ahmad Khanday who is also a prominent BJP leader has been shot down dead by 4 terrorists. He was killed outside his house in the Kulgam district of Southern Kashmir. This has been the second attack of its kinds on a village head in the state of J & K. This came after about 48 hrs of a similar attack and killing of another BJP-affiliated Sarpanch in Jammu Kashmir’s Kulgam district.


The terrorists as reported, had planted a bullet on the Sarpanch at Vessu in the Qazigund area of Jammu and Kashmir. The terrorists, as it seems to be, were well acquainted with the area and had fired the Sarpanch from a notably close range. Though the Sarpanch was rushed to the nearest hospital – GMC Anantnag - immediately, he had already breathed his last and the hospital declared that he was brought dead.


Following the unfortunate incident, Governor Girish Chandra Murmu, the outgoing lieutenant governor of the state stated that the situation is being closely monitored and addressed by the administration, also adding that the state’s security forces have been successful in eliminating a huge number of terrorists across the last couple of days in the state.


"We have seen that some soft targets are there. A lot of terrorists have been neutralization recently so there are some desperate actions. Wherever it is required, we are providing security. It is a continuous process to assess the threat," added Murmu.
