Jammu and Kashmir: Sarpanch Ajay Pandita shot dead by terrorists in Anantnag

It is pertinent to note that the encounter of a Kashmiri Pandit sarpanch happened hours after the security forces gunned down 4 terrorists in the Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir.

A Kashmiri Pandit Sarpanch was shot dead on Monday by terrorists in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir. Congress Sarpanch of Lokbowan Larkipora, identified as Ajay Pandita, was fired upon by the terrorists who later succumbed to his injuries at a hospital.

“He was rushed to the hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead,” Republic TV quoted a police officer. “Today at about 6 pm some unknown terrorists fired upon one Congress Sarpanch identified as Ajay Pandit at Lokbawan, Anantnag who later on succumbed to his injuries at a hospital,” the Jammu and Kashmir Police was quoted by ANI as saying.

According to the police sources, the sarpanch had gone to work in his orchard when he was attacked by the terrorists. The area has been cordoned off soon after the shooting. National Conference leader Omar Abdullah took to Twitter to condemn the “terror attack on a grassroots political worker”.

OpIndia tried to contact the Anantnag police but it could not elicit a response from them.
