The recent shootout in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, has left the Kashmiri Pandit community in shock and grief. On the night of April 3, a fierce gun battle broke out between security forces and terrorists in the district, resulting in the death of three people, including a Kashmiri Pandit assassin.
The slain Kashmiri Pandit assassin has been identified as Shabir Ahmad, a resident of Pulwama. He was reportedly part of a group of terrorists who were holed up in a house in the district. The security forces launched a cordon and search operation in the area after receiving intelligence inputs about the presence of terrorists.
The gun battle that ensued lasted for several hours and resulted in the death of two terrorists, including the Kashmiri Pandit assassin, and one soldier. The security forces also managed to rescue two civilians who were held hostage by the terrorists.
The death of the Kashmiri Pandit assassin has sent shockwaves through the community. The Kashmiri Pandits have been living in exile since the 1990s, when they were forced to flee their homes due to the threat of violence from militants.
The community has been struggling to rebuild their lives in exile, and the death of one of their own in a terrorist attack has only added to their grief. The Kashmiri Pandit community has condemned the attack and has called for an end to the violence in the region.
The security forces have launched a massive search operation in the area to track down the remaining terrorists. The government has also announced a compensation package for the family of the slain soldier and the two civilians who were rescued.
The Kashmiri Pandit community has expressed its gratitude to the security forces for their bravery and sacrifice in the line of duty. They have also urged the government to take steps to ensure the safety and security of the community in the region.
