Targeted Killings in J&K

The rise in targeted killings of Kashmiri pandits sparked protests in several districts with many demanding relocation, claiming that they do not feel safe in Srinagar.

Previously, a police officer Saifullah Qadri was killed after terrorists opened fire in Srinagar's Soura area. The man's daughter also sustained injuries during the attack, the police said.

On 25 May, a 35-year old television artist Amreen Bhat was shot dead by terrorists at her residence in the Chadoora area of Budgam. Her 10-year-old nephew was also injured in the attack.

In another fatal attack, Kashmiri Pandit and a government employee named Rahul Bhat was shot inside the local tehsil office by militants.
