Kishtwar, J&K: Terrorists on Tuesday attacked RSS leader Chandrakant Sharma inside a hospital in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar. Sharma worked as a medical assistant in the hospital. 

He has suffered injuries during the attack while his security guard, a J&K police officer, has been killed.

According to eyewitnesses, a man carrying a gun barged inside the hospital and shot at the leader and his PSO. Curfew has been imposed in Kishtwar and internet services were also snapped as precautionary measures.

A similar incident was also reported last year in Kishtwar, where BJP state secretary Anil Parihar and his brother Ajit were shot dead by terrorists. The killing triggered fears of unrest and a curfew was imposed in the area.

Before that, two National Conference workers and a PDP leader in Srinagar were also killed.
