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.
