Srinagar, July 27

Nearly 4,500 Kashmiri Pandit (KP) employees and their families left the Valley in the wake of targeted civilian killings this year. Kashmiri Pandit leaders say nearly 40 per cent of the 1,200 employees stationed at different transit camps across Kashmir left the Valley and “almost all employees” living in private accommodations migrated to Jammu after the targeted attacks.

Only 380 KP families are residing at seven transit camps in Kashmir, claims Ashwini Pandita, a leader of the All-Minorities Employees Association Kashmir. “There are 150 employees each in Vessu and Sheikhpora camps. Their number before the migration was 450 and 350,” he says.
