Srinagar: After the recent civilian killings, mobile internet services were suspended in parts of Kashmir Valley as a precautionary measure. Over the last 15 days, there have been nine deaths. The actions of militants have triggered anger, fear, and panic among people.

Mobile internet services are suspended in Anchar, Eidgah, Qamarwari, Soura, Maharajgunj, Nowhatta, Safa Kadal, Bagyass, Wanpoh, Qaimoh, and Pulwama.

A street vendor from Bihar was murdered by militants in Srinagar's Eidgah area on October 12. The owner of a reputed pharmacy and a taxi driver were also killed on the same day. two days later, a school principal and a teacher were killed in the same area. On Saturday, a street vendor from Bihar and a carpenter from Uttar Pradesh died after being attacked by militants. Two labourers from Bihar were killed on Sunday.

Several political, social, and religious organisations staged anti-Pakistan protests in Jammu. The BJP's youth wing, the Shiv Sena, the Dogra Front, the Jagti Front, and the Bajrang Dal were protesting against the civilian killings.

President of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) said that the brutal targeted killings by terrorists are another example of the cowardness of Pakistan and its sponsored terrorist outfits. He added that these terrorist acts will not suppress nationalist voices in the Valley and the rising popularity of a nationalist party like the BJP among the people of the Valley.

It is common for people from several parts of India to come to the Valley between March and November for skilled and unskilled jobs such as masonry, carpentry, welding, and farming.

One of the labourers told the PTI that they are scared but will not be going back yet. Many of them have been coming to Kashmir for work for as long as 15 years. They are scheduled to leave in the first week of November and that is when they intend to leave. Two labourers - Kumar and Narayan - said that they would not be coming here if they got similar wages anywhere else. They say people in the Valley are kind and generous.
