Srinagar July 15(KINS): Vice President Municipal Committee Watergam Baramulla, Meraj ud Din Malla was “kidnapped” by unidentified men from his home on Wednesday morning.

This comes days after a BJP leader and his two family members were killed in Bandipora. The political workers have been seeking security in Kashmir.

Locals told news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS)that some unknown persons came Wednesday morning and kidnapped Meraj when from his home in North’s Kashmir Baramulla district.
“Before anybody could react, he was taken away,” locals said.

It was not known immediately whether he belongs to any political party.

SSP Sopore Javid Iqbal said police has launched a manhunt to trace him. “We are looking into it who took him away,” he told KINS.

At least two youth leaders of the Bhartiya Janta Party from north Kashmir have resigned for the last five days.

On Saturday, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) president from Baramulla, Marouf Bhat tendered his resignation from the party.

“I hereby resign from the BJYM as a member and any post I held as part of it. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to work for the party,” Bhat said.

He was quoted by a national newspaper saying, “We can sacrifice our lives for the nation, but not of our children. I have been attacked twice in the past, yet nothing has been done about it. I have not been given even a single personal security officer.”

While on Tuesday, BJP’s Vice President for Kupwara Asif Ahmad also resigned from the party.

“I am from a well off family. I did not join BJP to make money but to work for my people. But we are not allowed to work by officials. BJP has no value on the ground. Officials are not bothered to listen to us and address issues of people,” he told KINS.(KINS)
