Jammu: Unidentified gunmen suspected to be terrorists on Thursday evening shot dead senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and party’s state secretary Anil Parihar and his brother in Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir.

A manhunt has been launched to trace the assassins, said the police

Sources said that unidentified gunmen suspected to be terrorists shot and killed Anil and his brother Ajit Parihar in Tapal Gali Mohalla of Kishtwar town.

The suspected terrorists were three to four in number. After committing the ghastly crime, they managed to escape from the site.

“Both were shifted to a hospital where doctors declared them dead on arrival. A manhunt has been launched to trace the assassins,” a police officer said.

Ravinder Raina, state BJP president, however, said it was a terrorist attack and that it was a big failure on the part of security agencies.

Protests broke out in the town as the news about the assassination of Ajit and Anil Parihar spread.

In view of the mounting tension in the area, curfew has been imposed in Kishtwar town, said an official.

Ajit Parihar was an employee of the state Financial Corporation.

A manhunt has been launched to trace the assassins, said the police.
