Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir unit of the BJP alleged on Saturday that seven members of a political party wearing helmets were present at the site of a recent militant attack in Sopore, and demanded an investigation into it.
A BJP spokesman asked whether the party members knew about the attack beforehand.
“Seven members of a particular political party were wearing cricket helmets when two of our municipal councillors were killed in a militant attack in Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district recently…. Is this political terrorism? Did these seven members already know that there would be a militant attack?” BJP spokesman Altaf Thakur said, without naming the party.
Two municipal councillors and a policeman were killed in the militant attack in Sopore on March 29.
Thakur demanded a thorough investigation into the incident.
“Why were they wearing helmets? Police must investigate it thoroughly,” he said.
