Baghpat: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) functionary was shot dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat district on Tuesday, August 12 morning, police said.

“Sanjay Khokhar, a former district unit president of the BJP, was out for a morning walk when the incident took place,” the police said.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath condoled Khokhar’s death and directed officials to initiate action against the guilty within 24 hours.

“Sanjay Khokhar (52), a resident of the Tilwara area of the district was going towards his tubewell in the morning when he was shot at by some criminals. He died on the spot,” Superintendent of Police Ajay Kumar Singh said.

“A police team rushed to the spot upon getting the news. So far, no complaint has been registered. Prima facie it (the reason behind the killing) seems to be enmity. Khokar was hit by bullets on the head and in the chest. Police teams have been formed to crack the case,” Singh said.

Khokhar was the district president of the BJP for three years and was removed from the post before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The body has been sent for post-mortem and a First Information Report (FIR) has been registered at the local Chhaprauli Police Station, according to officials.
