Pandit employees body send mass resignation letter to LG Sinha, PM Modi

Over 350 government employees in the Kashmir valley, all Kashmiri Pandits, have submitted their resignation letters to J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today, a day after their colleague, Rahul Bhat, was murdered by unknown gunmen.

Rahul Bhat, a Kashmiri Pandit government employee, sustained serious injuries after terrorists fired at him inside the Tehsil office in Chadoora town last evening. He was rushed to a hospital in Srinagar where he died. He got the job of a clerk under the special employment package for migrants in 2010-11.

The wife of Rahul Bhat, a government employee who was shot dead by terrorists a day ago inside his office in central Kashmir’s Budgam district, said there was some conspiracy behind his killing.

According to a report by news agency ANI, the terrorists must have spoken to some people for information before killing him. “He (Rahul Bhat) used to say everyone behaves nicely with him and nobody can harm him,” she said, adding, “Yet nobody protected him.”

“They (terrorists) must have asked someone about him, otherwise, how would they have known,” she further said.

There was widespread anger and grief in the Valley over the killing with members of the Kashmiri Pandit community staging protests at several places.

Government employees and families of Kashmiri Pandits held a protest against the administration in Budgam today over the targeted killing of Rahul Bhat.

Meanwhile, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, put under house arrest, said she wanted to visit Budgam to express her solidarity with the Kashmiri Pandits.

“Have been put under house arrest as the fact that Kashmiri Muslims and Pandits empathise with each other’s pain doesn’t fit into their vicious communal narrative,” Mehbooba Mufti said in a tweet.
