Srinagar:  The BJP Srinagar unit held a protest on Tuesday against the administration of the Shopian district over the killing of former sarpanch Aijaz Ahmad Sheikh by terrorists in the south Kashmir district two days ago.

Led by district BJP president Ashok Bhat, the party workers protested against the Shopian district administration at Jawahar Nagar here over the alleged neglect by the concerned authorities in safeguarding the former sarpanch, who was a BJP leader.

“The BJP demands a time-bound inquiry into the district administration Shopian’s failure to prevent this incident. The party believes that the administration’s negligence led to the untimely death of Aijaz Ahmad Sheikh, and they are calling for accountability and justice,” the party said in a statement issued after the protest.

Bhat, while addressing the protesters, said stringent measures were needed to ensure the safety of the BJP leaders and workers in the region.

He called upon the authorities to take swift action and address the security lapses that have put the lives of political leaders at risk.
