Security forces have pinned the attacks on hybrid militants — operatives who are not on any militant lists but have been radicalised enough to carry out a strikes and slip back into routine life. The hybrid militancy has triggered a wave of fear has among over 4,000 migrant Kashmiri Pandit employees, recruited under the Prime Minister’s special rehabilitation package, and hundreds of the Hindu employees from Jammu recruited under the Schedule Caste (SC) quota and posted in the Valley.
The hybrid militants in the past three months have killed at least 16 civilians in targeted attacks. The slain include 10 Kashmiri Muslims and six Hindus. On Thursday, an alleged hybrid militant killed Vijay Kumar, a manager at Ellaqui Dehati Bank (EDB) in Areh Mohanpora village of Kulgam. Soon after that, a group of Kashmiri Pandit (KP) employees were reportedly seen negotiating the rate for hiring a truck from Kulgam to Jammu. “We are preparing for mass migration from Kashmir to Jammu and have come to fix up the rate of trucks. The government only gives us false assurances and we can’t take it anymore,” Decan Herald reported quoting them.
The killing of Kumar came two days after government school teacher Rajni Bala, hailing from Samba district in Jammu division, was shot dead by terrorists on Tuesday in Kulgam where she was posted. Before her, Rahul Bhat, a clerk in the office of Tehsildar Chadoora in Budgam district, was shot dead inside his office on 12 May.
