Terrorists turn 'supari' killers, Pak stooges mum

Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 14: The so-called "freedom fighters" have unleashed a reign of terror in south Kashmir. They are killing people at their will and the so-called champions of human rights in the Valley seem least bothered about these killings.
Just a few days after Aqib Sofi of Khudwani in Kulgam district was abducted and then tortured to death, another youth from Pulwama district Gulzar Ahmad Bhat of Murran was picked up from his home from the terrorists and later his bullet riddled body was recovered from the outskirts of the village.
"As the support to the terrorists is dwindling and people are shutting their doors on them the terrorists are creating fear by abducting and killing the people on the pretext of being informers," said an official.
"The latest victim of the terrorists Gulzar Bhat, 24, was working as a salesman in a pharmacy and was just trying to make his ends meet. We are investigating his killing and are trying to ascertain which terrorists group is involved in it," said a police official.
Sources said that Aqib Sofi who was abducted in Khudwani and later tortured to death was earlier working as over ground worker for Lashkar-e-Toiba. "Aqib had left the subversive activities and was trying to live a normal life. The Hizbul terrorists abducted him and killed him. It looks like that Hizbul terrorists wanted to settle some personal scores with the LeT terrorists," sources added.
They said that apparently Gulzar Bhat had no links with any terror outfit. "A group of terrorists active in Pulwama district seem to have turned into supari killers. They are labeling people as informers just to settle the personal scores of the people," sources added.
They said that police and other security agencies are investigating all the possible angles and the "suprai killing" has come to fore recently.
Even the people have started raising their voice against the atrocities being committed by the terrorists and they are openly challenging them. "Due to security forces being on high alert the terrorists, especially in south Kashmir are on the run. Now they are trying to look for ways and means to survive. It seems they believe that they can survive only by creating fear and killing people as the locals are soft targets," said a source.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that despite terrorists unleashing terror the separatists have not uttered a word. "They are busy congratulation Pakistan and are issuing big statements to praise Imran Khan, who is all set to take charge as the new Prime Minister of Pakistan."
He said, "Kashmiris are killing Kashmiris but for Pakistan stooges these killings hardly matter as they cannot afford to annoy the terror groups. They just call for shutdowns when it suits them. Otherwise they are least bothered about the killings which are taking place. They stand exposed as their double standards of human rights violations are an open secret. It's high time for people of Kashmir to reject the politics of the Pakistan stooges and show them their right place."
