A twenty-four hour search has been continuing in the Balakot area along the line of control in Jammu and Kashmir. The search was initiated after some alleged terrorists open fired on the house of BJP’s Minority Morcha State Secretary, Zulfiqar Pathan on Saturday night.
The gunmen are yet to be identified and the search party is going strong, since this is not the first time that Zulfiqar Pathan has been targeted. In fact, on 15th of August, National Independence Day, an unidentified person had posted a poster on the BJP leader’s house asking him to resign from the office. Since the area is located very close to the LOC it is deduced that terrorists might be involved in the same.
