New Delhi: A Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been set up to probe into the killing of Kashmiri pandit Rahul Bhat on Friday. Bhat was shot dead by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district on Thursday.
Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha tweeted about the SIT formation amid outrage against the Central government.
“J&K administration to provide a government job to Rahul Bhat’s wife in Jammu and financial assistance to the family. The government will bear educational expenses of the daughter,” read Sinha’s second tweet.
Another Kashmiri police constable and resident of Pulwama — Riyaz Ahmad Thoker — also died after the terrorists shot him at his home on Friday.
