Former BJP district head Sanjay Khokar has been shot dead while on a morning walk in UP’s Bhagpat. According to reports, Khokar was shot dead in his field by 3 unidentified men. The Uttar Pradesh local police rushed to the site to take custody of the body. The matter is now under investigation.
A video clip of the incident is going viral on the internet. The video shows Khokar’s blood soaked body lying in the fields. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath reportedly expressed his grief over the Sanjay Khokar’s gruesome murder. Reports indicated that four bullets were fired at Khokhar, who was hit in chest and ear. The incident took place within the jurisdiction of Chaprauli Police Station. Police have reportedly recovered a bullet from the spot.
Shockingly this isn’t an isolated incident. Earlier, Senior RLD leader Deshpal Khokar was killed in a similar manner in UP’s Bhagpat. His alleged murder had drawn concerns about the law the order situation in the district. It also exposed the underlying affiliation between political leaders and local goons.
The incident comes just two days after the district president of Budgam BJP OBC Morcha was shot dead by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
Abdul Hamid Najar succumbed to injuries at a local hospital. “Abdul Hamid Najar, district president of Budgam BJP Other Backward Class (OBC) Morcha, was shot at by terrorists yesterday, has succumbed to his injuries,” said BJP Jammu and Kashmir.
There have been multiple string of political murders in the last month alone. Earlier, on August 6, BJP sarpanch Sajad Ahmad Khanday was killed by terrorists in Kulgam area of Jammu and Kashmir. Not too long ago, in July, former Bandipora BJP president Wasim Bari, his father and brother were killed by terrorists at their shop.
