With Kashmir valley getting back to normalcy with peace, Islamic terrorists strike again. They have targeted Hindu youth to eliminate Hindus in the valley. The Islamic terrorists Kashmir opened fire on the owner of the famous food joint in the Dalgate area of Srinagar, just a few kilometres away from Hotel Lalit, where foreign envoys and dignitaries stayed on their two-day trip to Jammu and Kashmir.
Terrorists shot down 22-year-old youth Aakash Mehra, son of Ramesh Kumar Mehra, who owns the famous Krishna Dhaba food company, located in the city’s high-security district. He was targeted from a near range by attackers and seriously injured on Wednesday night.
The injured young man was instantly rushed to the SMHS Hospital, where his condition was confirmed to be safe.
The Muslim Janbaz Force claimed responsibility for the attack which has been a banned militant outfit, reported the Police. After some eyewitnesses reported that the terrorists had fled after opening a fire at Aakash Mehra, the police looked at the footage of the CCTV.
As per the statement issued by the terror group, they attacked the Hindu youth because he is a ‘outsider’ who intends to get domicile status in Kashmir.
The terror group is headed by Chaudhary Yasin, a resident of Handwara. He is the vice-president of the Unified Jihad Council with Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) as chairman of the party.
The popular vegetarian restaurant is located in the city’s Durganag district. Several high-profile installations like the office of UN Military Observers Group for India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) and the residence of the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Justice are located near the food joint.
The cowardly assault on non-Kashmiris comes only when a delegation of envoys, including those from many countries of the European Union and a few member states of the Organization of Islamic Countries, visited Jammu and Kashmir to provide a first-hand account of the situation in the newly formed Union territory.
The envoys are reportedly just two kilometres from the attack site in a hotel. It’s not the first time that terrorists have targeted innocent people in Kashmir during such visits by international envoys.
