Terrorists fired upon three BJP workers identified as Fida Hussain Yatoo, Umer Rashid Beigh and Umer Ramzan Hajam in YK Pora, Kulgam on Thursday. They were shifted to a nearby hospital for treatment where they were declared as brought dead, Jammu and Kashmir Police said.
BJP Jammu and Kashmir spokesperson Altaf Thakur strongly condemned the killing of the BJP workers and termed the act as highly barbaric.

Meanwhile, Lieutenant Governor of the UT Manoj Sinha has strongly condemned the killings of the political workers who were shot dead by the militants in the Qazigund area of South Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

Law shall take its course and the guilty shall be dealt with sternly, he added.
The LG assured all possible help from the government to the bereaved families.
