J&K BJP spokesperson Altaf Thakur said Mehraj was walking on the road outside his home when some people stopped the car and took him away.

He is son of Ghulam Muhammad Malla, who joined BJP in 2012.

At least two youth leaders of the Bhartiya Janta Party from north Kashmir have resigned for the last five days.

On Saturday, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) president from Baramulla, Marouf Bhat tendered his resignation from the party.

“I hereby resign from the BJYM as a member and any post I held as part of it. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to work for the party,” Bhat said.

He was quoted by a national newspaper saying, “We can sacrifice our lives for the nation, but not of our children. I have been attacked twice in the past, yet nothing has been done about it. I have not been given even a single personal security officer.”

While on Tuesday, BJP’s Vice President for Kupwara Asif Ahmad also resigned from the party.

“I am from a well off family. I did not join BJP to make money but to work for my people. But we are not allowed to work by officials. BJP has no value on the ground. Officials are not bothered to listen to us and address issues of people,” he told KINS.(KINS)
