In recent days, five people were killed by terrorists in Kashmir and all are civilians. One of them is a pharmacist ‘Makhan Lal Bindroo’, known for a loyal clientele.
He is a resident of Indira Nagar, were among a few Kashmiri Pandit families that decided to stay back in the Valley in the 1990s, when militancy broke out.
Also, terrorists killed a non-local vendor from Bihar and a local taxi driver in Kashmir.
Today, two teachers were shot and killed by terrorists inside a government higher secondary school in the Eidgah area of Srinagar.
The statement from the Congress said, “The BJP govt’s inability to protect the Kashmiri Pandit community and civilians at large is a direct result of the instability they have caused in the region. The increase in militancy and rise in violence is proof of this government’s weak and apathetic attitude”.
“We strongly condemn these atrocious attacks on civilians. Congress President Smt Sonia Gandhi has instructed in-charge Of the state Rajni Patil to extend our support to the grieving families.”
Rahul Gandhi, who visited the state last month, too condemned the killings.
