Militants shoot at Pandit brothers in Kashmir: One dead, other injured

SRINAGAR, Aug 16: In a targeted killing, Kashmiri separatist militants shot dead a civilian and injured his brother, belonging to the Kashmiri Pandit (KP) community which has been partially resettled in Jammu and Kashmir recently, in south Kashmir’s Shopian district on Tuesday. The police have launched a manhunt for the terrorists.

The deceased has been identified as Sunil Bhutt, son of Sriji Butt, and his brother as Pitamber Kumar Bhutt, son of Arjun Butt, who has suffered serious injuries and is undergoing treatment in the hospital. They were attacked in their ancestral village Chotipora.

"Terrorists fired upon civilians in an apple orchard in Chotipora area of Shopian. One person died and one injured. Both belong to the minority community. Injured person has been shifted to hospital. Area cordoned off. Further details shall follow,” the police tweeted.

“Three Pandit families are living in Chotipora and a guard of Jammu and Kashmir Armed Police is guarding the cluster. The guard was provided to them last year after targetted killings of non-locals and Kashmiri Pandits began in valley,” they said.

On May 12 last, terrorists had shot dead Rahul Bhat (35), who had got a job of a clerk under the special employment package for migrants in 2012-11, in the revenue office in Chadoora town of Budgam. The Pandits had then began the protests. After a woman school teacher, Rajni Bala, a resident of Samba district of Jammu, was shot dead on May 31, the Pandits threatened migration en masse from the valley.

On Monday, there was another attack in Chadoora area of Budgam injuring one person. A grenade was thrown at a Pandit's house.

Earlier this month, Mohammad Amrez, a migrant worker from Bihar,was shot dead at Sumbal in the Bandipora district of north Kashmir.
