Budgam: Militants Thursday barged into a government office in central Kashmir’s Budgam district and fatally shot a Kashmiri Pandit employee. After the killing of Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhatt in Budgam on Thursday night, there is a lot of anger among the people of the valley.

People have been protesting vigorously since last night against the murder of Rahul. Kashmiri Pandits demonstrated in Sheikhpura, Budgam against the killing of Chadoora Tehsil office employee Rahul Bhat by terrorists. While protesting, a Kashmiri Pandit Amit said – We should be provided security by the Lieutenant Governor, otherwise we will resign in large numbers.

Police sources said demonstrations were reported from Qazigund, Pulwama, Budgam, Gandebal and Baramulla. The protesters threatened to resign en masse if the killings were not stopped and raised slogans against the BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, seeking protection.

However, members of Kashmiri Pandit Employees Association demonstrated in Anantnag demanding justice against the murder of Rahul Pandit in Budgam. Association member Sandeep Bhat said- We have asked the government to rehabilitate us in those places where we can feel safe.
