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.
7 Kashmiri Pandits killed since 2020
If we talk about Kashmiri Pandits being continuously targeted by terrorists, since the year 2020, there have been seven murders. In the same month, terrorists killed Puran Krishna Bhat. Puran Krishna Bhat was just outside the house when the terrorists shot and killed him. Kashmiri Pandits have been protesting since the last five months after the assassination of Rahul Bhat in Jammu. Militants shot and killed 35-year-old clerk Rahul Bhat at Chadoora tehsil office in Budgam district.
