A large number of people came on roads and strongly protested against the killing of Sarpanch.
Ghulam Mohammad Mir alias Bedar was kidnapped last evening and his bullet ridden body was recovered on Saturday.
Protesting people blocked the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad highway and demanded arrest of his killers.
The protests started in and around Hygam locality as soon as the body of slain Sarpanch reached his native area.
The protesters later dispersed off peacefully.
