Pandit body threatens stir
Jammu, June 3: A Kashmiri Pandit organization here today said it would launch an agitation if the Jammu and Kashmir Government failed to take immediate steps to trace a missing boy.
"We warn the Government to galvanize the police force and administration immediately to trace the missing Pandit boy in the Kashmir. If the government fails to trace the boy, we will be compelled to take to the roads," said A N Vaishnavi, President of All State Kashmiri Pandit Conference.
"If the Shopian incident can be probed by a sitting judge and a Special Task Force (STF), why is the Government silent over the issue of a missing Kashmiri Pandit boy?" he asked.
Sushil Raina from Chandergam (Pahalgam) in south Kashmir went missing on April 4 this year when he was on his way to college. "We want the Government to break its silence over the issue and constitute a special panel to launch an intensified search operation in the Valley to trace him," General Secretary of ASKPC, H L Chatta said.
He claimed that the government's indifference had "caused fear" and "eroded people's faith."
