Several hoteliers of Agra city of Uttar Pradesh have put up notices asking Kashmiri tourists to remain away from their properties.

The hoteliers said that the local population of Kashmir is “supportive of militants despite our security men being killed.” 

Last night, a Kashmiri shawl trader from central Kashmir’s Budgam district was ruthlessly beaten by a mob.

A graphic video of the attack which was posted on social media showed blood oozing out from the nose of Javid Ahmad Khan (27) of Astanpora mohallah of Soibugh as the mob abused and forced him to shout ‘Vande Mataram’.
