    Meanwhile, BJP spokesman in Srinagar condemned the killings and termed it barbaric.

    The Resistance Front (TRF), believed to be a shadow group of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, has claimed responsibility for the killings.

    In a message in English and Hindi on its social media account, the TRF said "crematoriums will get overbooked". Militants have since June stepped up attacks on BJP workers and leaders in the union territory, killing eight of them so far. In a similar attack in Bandipora in July, a BJP leader, his father and brother were killed by the ultras.
