Target Killing: 90s-like horror in Jammu and Kashmir? 10 Kashmiri Pandit families left their village in Shopian

Jammu: Terrorists are continuously doing target killing in Jammu and Kashmir. Now people are starting to fear it. 10 Kashmiri Pandit families have left their village in Shopian district and reached Jammu due to fear. The people of Chaudhrygund village said that the recent terrorist attacks have instilled a kind of fear among the Pandits, who lived in Kashmir even during the toughest period of militancy in the 1990s and did not leave their homes. It is noteworthy that on October 15, Kashmiri Pandit Puran Krishna Bhat was shot dead by terrorists outside his ancestral house in Chaudhrygund village of Shopian district. Apart from this, on October 18, Monish Kumar and Ram Sagar, who were sleeping in their rented house in Shopian, were killed in a grenade attack by terrorists.

A man from Choudharygund village, who recently faced death threats, told PTI that ten families comprising 35 to 40 Kashmiri Pandits have moved out of our village out of fear. He said that the village is now empty. Another villager said that the situation is not favorable for us to live in the Kashmir Valley. We are living in fear because of murders. There is no security for us.
