Srinagar, May 19 (CNI) National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Sunday condemned the twin terror attacks in Shopian and Anantnag districts of Jammu and Kashmir that left a BJP worker killed and a tourist couple from Rajasthan injured.


While the tourists from Jaipur – Farha and Tabrez — were injured in firing by terrorists at Pahalgam in Anantnag district on Saturday, former sarpanch and BJP worker Aijaz Ahmad Sheikh was killed by the ultras in Shopian district.


“Very sorry to hear about the twin militant attacks in South Kashmir against tourists & a political worker of the BJP. I unequivocally condemn these deadly attacks. My condolences to the family of Aijaz Ahmed. May Allah grant him place in Jannt. I also pray that Tabrez & Farah, from Jaipur in Rajasthan, make a complete recovery,” Abdullah posted on X.


The back-to-back attacks came at a time when campaigning for the parliamentary polls in the Anantnag-Rajouri seat is going on.


Polling in Baramulla Lok Sabha seat will be held on Monday in the fifth round of the seven-phase general elections.


Polling for the Anantnag seat was scheduled to be conducted on May 7 but was deferred after few political parties in Jammu and Kashmir raised concerns over weather conditions. Polling will now be held on May 25.(CNI)
