Shopian Admin rebuts report regarding exodus of Pandit families
Shopian: The District Administration Shopian today issued a rebuttal in reference to a news item circulated by PTI and carried by local dailies Kashmir Images and Kashmir Observer titled “10 Kashmiri Pandit Families leave their Village in Shopian” on October 26, 2022.
The District Administration Shopian in a statement issued here has termed the claims made by the news agency (PTI) regarding leaving of Kashmiri non-migrant Hindu population at Chodrigund Shopian as baseless and called it fake/misinformation.
The District Administration made it clear that proper and robust security arrangements have been put in place in the village even in other pockets of Kashmiri non-migrant Hindu habitations and villages.
It has also clarified that due to the onset of winter and after the harvesting period is over, many families migrate to Jammu and that there are no instances of migration due to fear in the district.
