J&K: BJP Leader Abducted In Sopore, Appeal To Home Ministry For Increased Security
Another BJP leader Manzoor Ahmed Bhat has appealed to Home Minister Amit Shah to intervene and provide security to grassroots level leaders of the Party.
So far it is not known who kidnapped Mehraj, but the role of local extremists is being considered in this incident. On July 8, BJP leader Wasim Bari, his father Bashir Ahmed and brother Omar Bashir were shot dead by extremists in Bandipora in the Valley. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had expressed condolences and asked for a report on the whole case.

BJP president JP Nadda had said that the killing of Wasim Bari is a loss for the party but his sacrifice will not go in vain.

But despite this triple murder, the Central Government agencies and J&K administration are not alerted and now another leader is under the clutches of the extremists.
