Jammu, June 01 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, relatives and colleagues of a woman teacher, who was killed in Kulgam by unidentified gunmen, gathered for her cremation in Samba, today, and raised slogans against the BJP-led Indian government for its “failure” to curb the cycle of targeted killings in the territory.
The teacher Rajni Bala was shot dead by unknown gunmen inside a school at Gopalpora in Kulgam district, yesterday.
The infuriated mourners blocked the Jammu-Pathankot highway to protest anger against the killing. However, police officers persuaded them to lift the protest on the highway due to which several vehicles were stranded.
A large number of colleagues of Rajni Bala, who had come from Kashmir to be present at her funeral, demanded their transfer to Jammu as they said that they were feeling unsafe in the Valley. IIOJK BJP chief Ravinder Raina and MP Jugal Kishore faced the anger of these teachers and Rajni’s relatives complaining that the administration has failed to curb the killings of Hindu employees and teachers in the territory.
The BJP chief tried to pacify the teachers by saying that he has already talked to Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on the issue.
Meanwhile, hundreds of people attended the cremation of Rajni Bala at Nanak Chak in the Samba district of Jammu.
Government employees belonging to Kashmiri Pandit community in Kashmir Valley said that they wanted to move en mass to Jammu but the occupoation authorities were not allowing them to come out of their transit accommodations.
