J&K civilian killings: Modi govt reacts, condemns Pakistan-pushed cross border terrorism

The Ministry of External Affairs strongly condemned 'targeted killings' of innocent people in Jammu & Kashmir. MEA said these incidents highlighted its concerns over cross-border terrorism from Pakistan. “We strongly condemn it. Innocent people are being killed. It is targeted killing. We are worried about cross border terrorism from Pakistan,” MEA Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said. As many as seven civilians have been killed by terrorists in Kashmir in the last five days. A woman principal & a teacher were shot dead inside a government school on Thursday. On Tuesday, Makhan Lal Bindroo, a Kashmiri Pandit, was killed by terrorists in Srinagar. India has been trying to mobilise global support to put pressure on Pakistan to crackdown on terror groups operating from its soil. India has also been concerned over possible spillover of terror activities from Afghanistan following Taliban takeover.
