Srinagar: Terrorists on Saturday night killed senior Janata Dal (United) leader in the sensitive south Kashmir district of Pulwama, even as security forces were put on high alert after intelligence inputs warn of a possible terror strike in Srinagar.
Ajaz Ahmad, 27, district president of JD(U) for Pulwama, was killed when terrorists fired at him from a vehicle outside his residence at Arrubugh village. He received grievous wounds and was rushed to the hospital, where he died. “In all probability, Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Majid was among those who shot him. We are on the lookout for them,” said Mohammad Aslam, SSP, Pulwama.
