The development came two days after a Kashmiri Pandit named Rahul Bhat was killed in Budgam district.
On Saturday, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut pointed out that reciting the Hanuman Chalisa or switching off loudspeakers will not solve the problems of the Kashmiri Pandits and that the central government must take tough decisions to end the “atmosphere of instability” in the Union Territory.
The killing of Rahul Bhatt attracted condemnation from the J-K Governor and the BJP leaders who have alleged Pakistan’s hand behind the targeted killing. (With ANI inputs)
