It may be noted that after the brutal killing, it was reported that terrorists belonging to the Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammad are suspected to be involved in the killing of the Kashmiri Hindu government employee Rahul Bhat in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district.
The cold-blooded murder of Rahul Bhat has enraged the Kashmiri Hindus in the valley who on Friday hit the streets to protest the heinous murder. The protesters blocked the highway and staged protests against the killing of Rahul Bhat, who was killed in a targeted attack on Thursday this week.
The demonstrations saw participation from government employees and families of Kashmiri Hindus living in Budgam to mark their protest against the administration over the killing of Bhat.
The participants also demanded that the governor Manoj Sinha speak to them about the spate of targeted attacks against the minority Hindu community in Kashmir.
The police resorted to lathi-charge and tear gas shells to disperse the Kashmiri Hindus.
Moreover, almost 350 Kashmiri Hindu Prime Minister package employees in Kashmir have sent their resignation to Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha saying that do not feel safe in the valley following the killing of Rahul Bhat.
