Former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Patel Shot dead by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama

Former Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Patel was shot dead by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district, reports Indian news portal NDTV.

Patel was shot dead in his car when he was travelling in his Scorpio SUV multiple times by terrorists in the district.

Patel's two personal security officers, who were travelling with him in the SUV, also sustained injuries and were rushed to a hospital. The terrorists fled with their service rifles, reported news agency ANI.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has condemned the killing of Patel and expressed sympathies with his family.

Police says a case has been registered and investigations taken up, reports NDTV.

Last year in April, ahead of the by-elections to Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency, Mr Patel had told NDTV that political workers there were "quivering in fear".
