J&K: Lashkar group warns migrants, claims responsibility for killing Bihar labourers

Srinagar: Lashkar-e-Taliban the frontal outfit, terror group United Liberation Front, has claimed the responsibility of the brutal killings happening in Kashmir which included two Bihari labourers.

 Amid the spate of recent attacks on migrants, the terror organisation has also warned migrant labourers to leave the Kashmir valley.

Terrorists gunned down two labourers from Bihar and injured another after barging into their accommodation in Kulgam in south Kashmir on Sunday. This was the latest in a series of attacks on non-locals in Jammu and Kashmir.

This was the third terror attack on non-local workers in a day. Earlier, a street vendor from Bihar and a carpenter from Uttar Pradesh were shot dead by the ultras on Saturday evening.

Targeted Killings

Several cases of Targeted killings have been registered and most victim are from the minority community. Last week six people were shot dead in targeted killings. So far this month, 11 people have lost their lives in shootings targeting civilians.

The terror attacks have drawn strong condemnation from political parties across the spectrum. NPP chairman and former minister Harsh Dev Singh had blamed the BJP government for the fast deteriorating security scenario in Jammu and Kashmir.

He said while the killings of innocents in J&K is being used by the BJP leadership as a mere occasion to “condemn Pakistan and promote communal hatred”, it has “utterly failed” in fulfilling its promises of restoring peace and normalcy in the troubled territory. Amid the civilian killings, Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha had on Sunday vowed to avenge every drop of their blood by hunting down terrorists and their sympathisers.

Security forces have launched a massive crackdown against “anti-social elements” in the Valley and detained around 700 people for questioning.

Former J&K governor Satyapal Malik has said today that during his regime there were no terrorist attacks in 50-100 kms near Srinagar.

According to news reports, people ae migrating from Kashmir to stay safe.
