kashmiri pandits: Will dismantle terror ecosystem in J&K, LG tells Kashmiri Pandits | India News – Times of India

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir lieutenant governor Manoj Sinha, while addressing protesting Kashmiri Pandits at Sheikhpora in central Kashmir’s Budgam district on Monday, said the administration is resolved to target not only those who kill the innocent but also those running the terror ecosystem.
The agitators have been staging a sit-in protest inside the residential cluster in Sheikhpora — demanding security for the Kashmiri Pandit community and the presence of LG Sinha — for the past 11 days following the targeted killing of fellow Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhat, a revenue department employee who was gunned down by terrorists at his office in Chadoora on May 12.
LG Sinha on Monday went to the cluster to meet the protestors and assured them that the administration will not rest till the terror ecosystem is dismantled completely. “The roots of terrorism have remained strong in J&K for too long. There was a time when even a case wouldn’t be registered. While nobody can compensate for the death of a person, the government is taking measures to provide job compensation to Bhat’s next of kin,” said Sinha.
The LG said security forces have had the upper hand in tackling terrorism in the Valley over the past year. “Despite this, some incidents have taken place. There are (terrorist) informers everywhere. Nobody can even identify them,” he said, adding: “We will not stay calm until this (terror) ecosystem is put to an end… (we) can’t tolerate this anymore.”
Sinha listened to the concerns of the agitating Kashmiri Pandits and assured them that directions have been issued to the authorities concerned to ensure a safe and secure atmosphere for the community. “Homes are being constructed (for them) while at some places lands are being arranged, and DPR in some cases are in the final stage,” the LG said.
