J&K Admin Constitutes SIT To Probe Rahul Bhatt’s Killing
Srinagar: A Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been constituted by the Jammu and Kashmir administration to investigate the murder of Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhatt.
The victim, Bhatt, an employee of the revenue department in Budgam district, was shot at by terrorists on Thursday. He succumbed to his injuries later.
Following his death, members of the Kashmiri Pandit community took to the streets in protest.
