In another dreadful act, some unidentified terrorists shot dead Mansoor Ahmed Bangroo, a sarpanch from Pattan area of district Baramulla, Kashmir. This comes less than two weeks ahead of PM Modi’s visit to the Jammu region of J&K UT.

J&K BJP President Ravinder Raina strongly condemned the gruesome act and alleged that coward Pakistani terrorists have again resorted to spreading terror in the valley. Even the holy month of Ramzaan didn’t hold any significance to these terrorists. Earlier also, the sarpanch in the valley was targeted.

Launching a scathing attack on terror outfits, Raina said they would have to pay a heavy price for these targeted killings our armed forces won’t spare such dreadful acts in the valley.

Meanwhile, condemning Bangroo’s killing, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said: “Perpetrators of this despicable act shall be punished. My deepest condolences to the bereaved family in this hour of grief.”

Several other political parties active in the region also criticised the killing.
