The Hush Post: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker was kidnapped and killed by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, police said on Wednesday.
Shabir Ahmad Bhat was shot dead by terrorists in the early hours of Wednesday at his home in Pulwama’s Rakh-e-litter area.
“Shabir Ahmad Bhat was abducted on Tuesday. His bullet-riddled body was found earlier this morning,” the police said.
As per sources, Bhat was also provided with armed guards for protection. Bhat is the first political activist killed by the terrorists after the government declared municipal and panchayat elections in the state of Jammu and Kashmir last week.
BJP chief Amit Shah has condoled Bhat’s death by saying that terrorists could not stop the youth from choosing a better future. He further said that “this cycle of violence won’t last long.”
