Involvement in demographic change will result in death, says terror outfit | India News – Times of India


SRINAGAR: “Kashmir Freedom Fighters”, the little-known outfit that claimed responsibility for killing bank manager Vijay Kumar, put out a statement saying the Kulgam attack had been an “intelligence-based operation” and that “anyone involved in the demographic change of Kashmir will meet the same fate”. The statement, bearing the name of KFF spokesperson Waseem Mir, added: “So it’s an eye opener for al those non-locals who are living in fool’s paradise that the Modi-led government will settle them here its nothing but just an illusion… (sic).” It said that they should “now understand the reality that it will cost them their lives”.
The attacks on non-Kashmiri government employees have led to J&K lieutenant governor Manoj Sinha ordering the shifting by June 6 of all migrant employees in the Union Territory to their respective district headquarters for safety.
CCTV footage revealed th- at a man in a T-shirt and trousers, believed to be a terrorist, entered the bank branch the first time perhaps to locate his target, the manager. He then emerged from the bank and re-entered a few minutes later with a pistol and a bag. The footage showed the terrorist aiming at Kumar from close range while the manager was talking on his cellphone. Kumar was taken immediately to Kulgam district hospital where he was declared brought dead, the police said.
Thursday’s killings of non-Kashmiris came after civilian Farooq Ahmad Sheikh was shot at and injured in Shopian on Wednesday. The terrorists shot Ahmad in the leg late Wednesday evening, according to police.
On Tuesday morning, a 36-year-old Dalit teacher from Jammu’s Samba district, Rajni Bala, was shot dead outside the government school where she worked in Gopalpora, in Kulgam district.
The bank manager is the first migrant victim in June, the Bihar labourer the second. Of the seven targeted killings in May, three victims were off-duty policemen and four were civilians, including TV artist Amreena Bhat, Kashmiri Pandit government clerk Rahul Bhat and school teacher Rajni Bala.
