 A former Sarpanch was killed and a couple from Rajasthan injured in two separate terror attacks in Shopian and Anantnag districts of south Kashmir on Saturday evening, Police said.

In the first incident, terrorists targeted Aijaz Ahmad Sheikh, a former Sarpanch from Haripora, Shopian. The attack took place in the evening, and Sheikh was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital.

Despite efforts by medical staff, he succumbed to his injuries shortly after arriving at the hospital.
