Pampore: Unidentified gunmen killed brother of a PDP Sarpanch in Awantipora area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
The gunmen barged into the residence of Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Dar at Dogripora village on Sunday evening and fired upon him injuring him critically, police sources told Kashmir Reader.
Dar, brother of PDP sarpanch Mohammad Shaban, was shifted to SMHS Hospital in Srinagar where he succumbed to his injuries, the sources said.
Dar’s 85-year-old father was killed by gunmen during Parliamentary elections in May this year.
It is first political killing in Awantipora area ahead of the five-phased Assembly elections in the state.
