Srinagar: In Kashmir, militants entered an apple orchard and opened fire on brothers belonging to the Pandit community. One of them died on the spot. One was seriously injured.
Attacks on migrant workers by the Pandit minority community in Kashmir have been on the rise in recent times. Three months ago, a Kashmiri Pandit was murdered in a government office in Putgam district. The Pandit community staged massive protests after the incident. As their lives and property were not guaranteed, they staged protests demanding that they all arrange to return to Jammu. After Budgam incident, 5000 Pandits started working safely instead of going to government jobs.
