Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh condoled the brutal murder of J&K Sah Prant Seva Pramukh Chandrakant and his security personnel.

Shri Chandrakant, a medical assistant at government hospital in Kishtwar, had been provided with an armed PSO of J&K police, Rajinder Kumar, after a review of the threat he faces for his association with RSS. As per reports, there were three terrorists and they opened fire when Chandrakant along with his PSO was coming out of the hospital’s OPD around 12.30 pm. The militants fled the scene after snatching away the AK-47 rifle of the policeman. Inspector General of Police for Jammu zone, M K Sinha, confirmed shootout at the district hospital as an act of terror. “Searches have been launched to track down the militants who have taken along the service weapon of the deceased PSO,” he added.

“We are deeply anguished and sad over the brutal killing of Sah Prant Seva Pramukh of RSS Chandrakant Ji and his security personnel in a terrorist attack at Kishtawar in Jammu and Kashmir today. The RSS strongly condemns this act of cowardice. He was the bulwark of fight against terrorism in Doda Kishtwar and a rallying point for National forces. His sacrifice is an irreplaceable loss for the organisation and the patriots in Jammu Kashmir especially the Hindu Society. May God bless the departed souls and give strength to their families to bear the loss. We believe that their sacrifice will not go in vain and the swayamsevaks and the whole society will get inspired from his work and life to take the fight against terrorism to the logical end. We urge the state government to find the perpetrators of this ghastly act and punish them severely at earliest possible.”
