Terrorists in Kashmir killed 1,724 people - of whom 89 were Kashmiri Pandits and the rest were "people of other faiths", including Muslims - over the past 31 years, the Srinagar district Police HQ said last month in response to a RTI request file by a Haryana-based activist.


New Delhi, 15 December 2021

As per news report of NDTV, The information comes after a wave of civilian killings in parts of J&K, including Srinagar, in the past few months, in which Kashmiri Pandits as well as many from other communities, including Muslims, and those from outside the union territory, were shot dead. The government this month denied the killings had triggered fears among minority communities, although it said "115 Kashmiri Pandit families, mostly women and children, had moved to Jammu". Data from a second RTI response - filed with the Office of the Relief and Rehabilitation Commissioner (J&K) - showed that 88 per cent of the 1.54 lakh people, or 1.35 lakh individuals, who fled the Valley in the face of rising violence and tension since 1990 - were Kashmiri Pandits.
