Jammu: Lieutenant Governor, J&K Girish Chandra Murmu has expressed deep pain and anguish at the killing of Ajay Pandita  Bharti,  Sarpanch in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district, who was shot dead by unknown gunmen on Monday.

Calling it a cowardly act, the Lt Governor condemned the killing and said that those behind the killing are the enemies of humanity.
