Jammu: Several organisations staged a protest in Jammu on Thursday over the targeted killing in Kashmir.

A woman principal and a teacher were shot dead at point blank range inside a government school in the heart of Srinagar on Thursday, taking the number of civilians killed in Kashmir in the past five days to seven.

Of the seven, six deaths took place in Srinagar.

Activists of Panun Kashmir took out a protest rally in Durganagar area of Jammu.

They set fire to an effigy of Pakistan, and slammed the government for its failure to protect minorities in Kashmir.

A Panun Kashmir leader said the spate of killings was an eye-opener for the Centre and J&K government.

Activists of the Shiv Sena and the Dogra Front also took out a protest rally.

“The government must deal with the terrorists and their supporters within Kashmir with an iron hand before dealing with Pakistan. Justice should be delivered,” Shiv Sena leader Ashok Gupta said.

The Rastriya Bajrang Dal and the VHP also protested the civilian killings.

Several organisations representing the Kashmiri Pandit community also held protests.
