Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 6: While selective killings of civilians and unarmed cops are going unabated in Kashmir Valley, authorities are still groping in the dark.
“Strong condemnation” with ‘heavily loaded’ words has become a routine as the present dispensation appears to be helpless in containing selective killings, going in Valley after repeated intervals.
Highly placed sources said that those who are at the helm of the affairs are busy only issuing “condemnations” after all selective killings but on the ground fear psychosis has gripped businessmen who chose to stay in the Valley when militancy was at its peak.
According to reports, 23 civilians have been shot dead by terrorists in targeted-killings this year till date, including 8 in Srinagar, 4 in Pulwama, 4 in Anantnag, 3 in Kulgam, 2 in Baramulla, 1 in Budgam and 1 in Bandipora. Three of 23 were non-locals from mainland India, 2 Kashmiri Pandits, and 18 were Muslims.
Selective killings of prominent businessmen are part of the deep-rooted conspiracy to completely shake the confidence of those who dared to live in Kashmir.
“The incumbent dispensation is not realizing the ground situation”, sources said and added that still, authorities are thinking they will tackle this gameplan only by issuing press statements.
On the first day of this year terrorists killed a jeweller Satpal Nischal, who had been running a jewellery shop in the heart of Srinagar for the last nearly 50 years.
Jeweller’s killing was followed by the killing of Akash Mehra, 25, who was the son of the owner of the famous Krishna Dhaba of Srinagar city.
Now militants killed owner of the famous Bindroo Medicate Makhan Lal Bindroo.
According to police, terrorists fired upon the owner of Bindroo Medicate namely Makhan Lal Bindroo near Iqbal Park in Srinagar on Tuesday. With severe bullet injuries, Bindroo was shifted to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Bindroo Medicate is one of the oldest medical shops in Srinagar city. Even during the peak of terrorism, this family stayed in the Valley.
A newly-formed terrorist organisation United Liberation Front (ULF), Jammu and Kashmir, which has been operating in the valley claimed responsibility for all three targeted attacks in Kashmir and warned of further attacks.
After the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35-A, attacks on non-locals were increased in the Kashmir Valley.
In October 2019, terrorists had intensified the selective killing of non-local workers to create terror.
• The gruesome killing was on October 29, 2019 when terrorists killed five workers from West Bengal in Katrasoo village of Kulgam district.
• The poor victims were daily wagers working in orchards and paddy fields spread over vast tracts of land in south Kashmir. A sixth worker, Zahoor-u-din, had survived the gunshot wounds.
• On October 14, 2019, a truck driver from Rajasthan, Mohammad Sharief, was shot dead in Shopian.
• Sethi Kumar Sagar, a worker from Chhattisgarh was killed was terrorists on October 16, 2019 in Pulwama.
• The same day, Charanjeet Singh, a truck driver from Punjab, was killed in Shopian.
• On October 23, 2019, two truck drivers, Mohammad Ilyas and Zahid, from Rajasthan were killed in the Shopian district.
• On October 28, 2019, militants killed Narayan Dutt, a truck driver from Katra in Jammu, in the Bijbehara area of Anantnag.
• On January 1, 2021, terrorists killed a jeweller Satpal Nischal, who had been running a jewellery shop in the heart of Srinagar for the last nearly 50 years.
The 70-year-old jeweller was killed for obtaining a domicile certificate that allows people who have lived in Jammu and Kashmir for more than 15 years rights to purchase immovable property.
The Resistance Front (TRF), had taken responsibility for the killing.
