Recent civilian killings in J&K, a ‘conspiracy’, Kashmiris not involved: Farooq Abdullah

Amid a spree of civilian killings being reported from Jammu and Kashmir in the past few days, former chief minister Farooq Abdullah said that the attacks were not being carried out by Kashmiris. He alleged that the attacks were a conspiracy to defame the locals and to disrupt peace.

“These killings are unfortunate and done under a conspiracy. Kashmiris are not involved in these killings. It is an attempt to defame Kashmiris,” the J&K National Conference (JKNC) supremo said, as quoted by NDTV.

Mr. Abdullah’s comments come after nearly three migrants from Bihar have been killed over the past two days and eleven such casualties of mostly migrants have been reported in the last few days.

Arvind Kumar Sah, a street vendor from Bihar was killed in Srinagar on Saturday. After that Sageer Ahmad, a carpenter from Uttar Pradesh was shot in Pulwama district.

Two more migrant labourers from Bihar, Raja Reshi Dev and Joginder Reshi Dev lost their lives on Sunday after being fired at by terrorists in the Kulgam district.

Saturday’s attacks came hours after IGP Kashmir, Vijay Kumar had assured that the “militants responsible for the killings have been identified.”

Denying any security lapse on their part, he said that police cannot be expected to provide security to everyone.

Meanwhile, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has expressed his concern over the killings of migrants hailing from the state and announced ex-gratia for the family of the deceased.
