Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed escaped unhurt in a militant attack on the office of the district magistrate in Anantnag where he was filing his election papers on Wednesday afternoon.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
Sayeed is the ruling Peoples Democratic Party candidate from Pahalgam constituency in Anantnag district. The seat was vacated by his daughter, Mehbooba Mufti, after she was elected to the Lok Sabha earlier this year.
