Tracking, neutralising terrorists behind Kishtwar killings our main challenge: Ram Madhav

Terrorists behind the killings of a senior Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) leader and his brother in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district would soon be neutralised, said party general secretary Ram Madhav on Tuesday. Suspected militants had shot dead BJP state secretary Anil Parihar and his brother Ajeet Parihar on November 1 in a narrow lane, where they were fired upon from close range.
"Right now, our main challenge is to track down the terrorists (behind the killings) and neutralise them. That will be done very soon," Madhav told reporters in Kishtwar."That (neutralising terrorists) is the important thing here. Of course, we will not allow these kinds of activities to create instability and violence in Kishtwar or Doda, the peaceful areas of Jammu region. That is our priority and we are focusing on that," he added.
Madhav was on a visit to the district to pay homage to Parihar and his brother. He was accompanied by Union ministers JP Nadda and Jitendra Singh and state BJP president Ravinder Raina.Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik, on November 5, had claimed those involved in the killings had been identified and will be brought to book soon.
"It has been proved that it was an incident of militancy," he had said, adding that it "was an act of frustration on the part of militants and Pakistan".
A Special Investigation Team (SIT) was also constituted by the Jammu and Kashmir government to probe the killings.
The SIT has detained some persons in connection with the killings and has been directed to expedite the investigation and submit its report as early as possible.
