Killings planned to push Kashmiri Pandits out, claims IGP Kashmir
BUDGAM — Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar on Tuesday met protesting Kashmiri Pandits at Budgam and urged them not to think of leaving Kashmir as the “same were plans of militants and their masters across” that have to be foiled by all means.
He assured Kashmiri Pandits of every help and promised them “better and enhanced security cover in the days ahead.”
As per the news agency Kashmir News Observer (KNO), while addressing Kashmiri Pandit protesters at Sheikhpora, Budgam, the Inspector General of Kashmir said that the shortcomings in the security grid will be addressed very soon and at the same time, ‘we will eradicate terrorism’.
