Srinagar, 07 October: After five people were killed in Srinagar in the last 48 hours, Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh said on Thursday that the killing of unarmed civilians in Srinagar is a conspiracy to damage the centuries-old traditional communal harmony in Kashmir. The police have got some clues about these murders and they are also working on it. He also said that the killers will be caught very soon.
Speaking to reporters outside the Government Boys Higher Secondary School Sangam, Idgah, Srinagar, the DGP said the killing of innocent civilians showed “disappointment” and “barbarism”.
The DGP said that this is an attempt to defame the local Muslims of Kashmir. The killing of innocent civilians including teachers is an attack on the age-old tradition of communal harmony and brotherhood in Kashmir.
He said that the killing of innocents is a conspiracy to target the local ethos and values, which will be defeated with the cooperation of the police and the people.
He said that the police have got some clues about the killers in the previous cases and new case will also be investigated.
He said that I spoke to the staff members of the school and they are shocked by the loss of two colleagues. Police will soon catch the killers. The Resistance Force (TRF) is responsible for these killings and it is the front group of all terrorist organizations like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Hizbul Mujahideen. He said this is a pattern as they want to terrorize the minority community.
Terrorists once again shot dead two teachers in the downtown area of Safakadal on Thursday morning. Both of them were teachers of Boys Higher Secondary School, Idgah.
In the ongoing meeting of teachers regarding the preparation plan for the upcoming examination in the school, suddenly two terrorists entered and asked the names of all the teachers. Leaving the local Muslim teachers, two non-Muslim teachers were taken out of the meeting by the terrorists and brought to the school premises and shot.
Both the teachers injured in the terrorist attack were taken to the hospital, but unfortunately they died during treatment.
Among the dead are Principal Rupinder Kaur, resident of Hazuribagh in Srinagar and teacher Deepak Chand, resident of Janipur Patoli Mor, Jammu. Both of them belong to the Sikh community. After this attack, a large number of people have taken to the streets in protest against the terrorist attack in Srinagar.
Two days before this, on Wednesday evening, terrorists carried out three attacks one after the other, in which three people including Makhanlal Bindroo, who runs a chemist’s shop, were killed.
