Targeted killing of Hindus in Kashmir Valley

On Thursday (June 2), two non-local workers were shot at by Islamic terrorists in Magraypora, in the Chadoora area in Budgam district of central Kashmir. One of them succumbed to the injuries while the other remained in a critical state.

As per reports, the deceased worker was identified as 17-year-old Dilkhush Kumar. He was a resident of Arniya village in the Vaishali district of Bihar. Dilkhush was rushed to the Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital in Srinagar where he was declared dead on arrival.

The other victim named Rajan, who belongs to Punjab, was also injured during the attack by terrorists. His condition was said to be stable. The duo worked as labourers in a brick kiln in the Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir.

He was the Bank Manager of Elaqahi Dehati Bank. On May 31, the Kashmir Zone Police informed that a Hindu migrant teacher named Rajni Bala was killed in Kulgam district’s Gopalpora area.
