A little-known terror outfit ‘Kashmir Freedom Fighters’ has claimed responsibility for the murder of a Kashmiri Pandit in Shopian.

Sunil Kumar was shot dead and his brother, identified as Pintu Kumar, sustained grievous injuries in a terror attack in Chotipora village of Shopian on Tuesday morning.

A poster of ‘Kashmir Freedom Fighters’, doing the rounds on social media, said that their carders carried out an operation in Chotipora area of Shopian. “In this operation, one Kashmiri Pandit Sunil Kumar was eliminated and his brother critically injured,” reads the poster. “They were core members for agencies in generating inputs about freedom fighters and were forcing people for so-called Tiranga rallies,” the poster added.

They have also warned: “In addition, we have already warned that anyone involved in a demographic change of Kashmir, whether Pandits or non-locals, will meet the same fate. So be ready, we are coming for you,” said the poster.

The authenticity of the poster could not be verified as the police said that such outfits have proved to be shadowy offshoots of terrorist organizations.
