177 Kashmiri Pandit teachers transferred to 'safer locations' as targeted killings continue

Scores of Kashmiri Pandits employed in the valley have been staging protests threatening mass exodus since the killing of Rahul Bhat, who was shot dead by terrorists on May 12

177 Kashmiri Pandit teachers employed in Srinagar have been transferred to 'safer locations' as targeted killings continue in the valley.

However, a J&K administration list containing names of the transferred Kashmiri Pandit teachers was reportedly leaked and has led to concerns regarding their safety.

Scores of Kashmiri Pandits, who were employed under a prime minister's package in 2012, have been staging protests threatening mass exodus since the killing of Rahul Bhat, who was shot dead by terrorists on May 12 in the Chadoora area of Budgam district in central Kashmir.

Bhat's killing sparked demonstrations by around 6,000 employees at various places who demanded their relocation outside the Valley.

The protests further intensified after a woman teacher from Jammu's Samba district was shot dead by terrorists at a school in south Kashmir's Kulgam district on Tuesday.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Friday made it clear the employees would not be moved out of the Valley but transferred to safer locations.

The transfer orders came a day after Home Minister Amit Shah held a high-level meeting to review the security situation in the union territory.
