Terrorists killed a Kashmiri Pandit: A Kashmiri Pandit is once again killed by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir. Terrorists carried out this incident in the Tehsildar office located at Chadoora in Budgam district of Kashmir. The Hindus of Kashmir are protesting against the killing of Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhatt and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti also wanted to go to this demonstration. But she has been put under house arrest.
At the same time, the wife of the deceased Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhatt said, “The government is not thinking about our security. We are being made scapegoats. Terrorists are targeting and killing Kashmiri Pandits. Surely the people accompanying him must have told something to the terrorists, only then the terrorists reached there and killed him.”
There was a demonstration on Thursday as well and the protesting Kashmiri Pandits demanded that they will not take the dead body till the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha comes there. However, on the persuasion of the administration, Kashmiri Pandits agreed and the body was taken to Rahul Bhatt’s house. Kashmiri Pandits also took to the streets and raised slogans against the Central Government and the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Manoj Sinha. Kashmiri Pandits said that they are constantly being attacked by targeting them and the government has failed to provide them security.
At the same time, Rahul Bhatt’s father said that Rahul had been applying for transfer for the last several months but the district administration did not consider his application. He said, “If a Pandit is not safe in a government office, then where is he? Rahul’s wife and children are also in Kashmir. The government has failed to provide security to Kashmiri Pandits. Rahul got his job in 2011, but he wanted a transfer from Chadoora.
Actually, Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhatt was working in the Tehsildar office and was on his duty on Thursday. But on Thursday afternoon, terrorists entered the Tehsildar’s office and killed Rahul Bhatt. After the terrorists carried out this incident, Rahul was hurriedly taken to the neighboring hospital, where the doctors declared him brought dead.
After this incident, anger is being seen among the Kashmiri Pandits and the people of the whole country. After the incident, Kashmiri Pandits took to the streets across Kashmir to protest. The pundits clearly said that if they do not get the guarantee of security, then they will not go to their work. Kashmiri Pandits protested by blocking Baramulla-Srinagar Highway and Jammu-Srinagar Highway.
The last rites of Rahul Bhatt were performed in Bantalab on Friday morning. Jammu and Kashmir ADGP Mukesh Singh, Divisional Commissioner Ramesh Kumar and Deputy Commissioner Avani Lavasa were present at the funeral. A large number of security forces and common people were also present during the funeral.
