A Peoples Democratic Party activist, who was shot at by suspected terrorists in Kulgam district, succumbed to injuries at a hospital here on Monday, an official said.
Mohammad Jamal, who was shot at inside his residence at Zungalpora village on Sunday night, succumbed to injuries at the SKIMS hospital, the official said.
PDP president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti condemned the killing of her party worker.
“Heartbreaking. Party workers in Kashmir put their neck on the line & have to suffer for their beliefs,” Mufti tweeted. “Ironic that such mindless violence is justified in the name of Islam in the month of Ramzan. Shame on these cowards who call themselves Muslims.”
Former IAS officer-turned-politician Shah Faesal and CPI(M) leader M Y Tarigami also condemned the killing.
