As per news report of NDTV, Police fired teargas shells after a group of Kashmiri Pandits tried to march towards Srinagar airport. At several areas, members of the community left their transit camps, blocked roads and raised slogans against the central government and BJP, saying they have failed them. Over four thousand Kashmiri Pandits are living in transit camps in various parts of Kashmir after they were given government jobs under a special employment package launched in 2010. The angry protesters also raised slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha. At several places, candlelight marches were also held. "We condemn this shameful incident. We ask the government, is this rehabilitation? Did they bring us here to get killed? There is no security here," said Ranjan Zutshi, a protester.
