It is alleged that Malik tried to snatch rifle from a soldier who shot him dead. But relatives of ex-Sarpanch deny this and said, “Sajjad Malik was shot in cold blood.”
The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president G A Mir has demanded a judicial probe into the killing of Sajjad Malik, an ex-sarpanch of Congress .”It needs judicial enquiry as it is a custodial killing. Why is Mehbooba Mufti getting innocent people killed?” he asked.
