Srinagar, April 9: An unspecified number of terrorists attacked a medical assistant in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday. The victim, identified as RSS leader Chandrakant Sharma, was attacked at Kishtwar district hospital. He later succumbed to injuries, said BJP Spokesperson Sunil Sethi. Sharma's PSO was also shot dead in the terror attack. Sharma is associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). More details are awaited.
In February, an incident involving two RSS workers had surfaced from Kerala. The RSS worker, who was the prime accused in a bomb attack on a police station in Thiruvananthapuram, was arrested. Praveen, a district functionary of the RSS, and his accomplice Sreejit, a sangh worker had hurled bombs at the Nedumangad Police Station during the shutdown called by Hindutva outfits.
The incident happened during a bandh which was called in January to protest against the entry of two women into the Sabarimala Temple, a report by PTI stated. Reports inform that Police had issued a look out notice against Praveen after CCTV visuals showed him hurling at least four bombs at the police station during a clash with the Communist Party of India (Marxist) workers.
