JAMMU: A day after schoolteacher Rajni Bala, a resident of Samba and a Dalit Hindu, was gunned down outside her government school at Gopalpora in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district in yet another targeted killing by terrorists in the Valley, angry Samba locals bade her a tearful adieu on Wednesday while also registering their protest by blocking the Jammu-Pathankot National Highway. This was the seventh targeted killing in May.
The protesters raised slogans against the BJP government at the Centre and the J&K administration for failing to protect minorities in Kashmir. They also gheraoed J&K BJP chief Ravinder Raina and MP Jugal Kishore, who rushed to the house of the slain teacher in the sleepy Nank-e-Chak village to offer their condolences and participate in her last rites.
A pal of gloom had descended on Nank-e-Chak since the news of Rajni’s killing reached there, but the village became more disconsolate and sorrowful when her body arrived late on Tuesday.
The protesters were led by angry villagers and Samba Teachers’ Association. Apart from slamming the central government and the UT administration, the protesters also raised slogans against the local BJP leadership, stating that the party had failed in its promise to provide a safe environment to the people of Jammu.
“We want all Dogra employees working in Kashmir to be deployed in Jammu, so that they can live in peace and safety,” Virender Kumar, a protester, said.
Jammu Zone ADGP Mukesh Singh also visited Nank-e-Chak and attended Rajni’s funeral. While interacting with the husband of the slain teacher, Singh said that the entire police ‘parivar’ (family) stood with the bereaved family. He assured that every support would be provided to the family from the police.
Amid protests and blockades on the busy NH, Rajni’s mortal remains were consigned to flames.
