Terrorists shot dead a female teacher of a high school in Gopalpora area of Kulgam district. The female teacher was seriously injured due to bullet injuries and died on the way to the hospital. The police have cordoned off the entire area and started a search operation to nab the terrorists. The teacher who became the victim of the terrorists has been identified as Rajni Bala. She was appointed under the Prime Minister’s Employment Package announced for the return and rehabilitation of displaced Kashmiri Hindus in Kashmir. She was originally from Samba district of Jammu division. She was living in a rented house in Chawalgam Kupwara.
This is the second incident of killing of a Kashmiri Hindu, especially a displaced Kashmiri Hindu, who got government jobs under the Prime Minister’s Employment Package in the last 19 days in the Kashmir Valley. Earlier on May 12, terrorists had killed Rahul Bhatt, a clerk working in the Chadoora Tehsildar office, in his office itself. The anger that erupted in the entire Jammu and Kashmir over the murder of Rahul Bhatt has not yet subsided that the second murder was committed again.
Former Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah expressed grief over the murder of the teacher. Omar Abdullah wrote on his Twitter handle, ‘Very sad. This is yet another target killing in a long list of recent attacks on innocent civilians. The words of condemnation and condolence are becoming hollow. There is only assurance from the government that they will not rest till the situation becomes normal.
