He said that several requests were made to the district police officer for his transfer, but these were not carried out. Because of this, his terrorists committed suicide. If he were to be killed.
Another local, Rakesh Bhatt, said the Pandits should not be sent back to Kashmir, but should be kept in safe camps in Jammu. He said, “Rahul’s killing is another selective killing of a law-abiding civilian. It sowed fear among the other Pandit employees in the valley, who no longer felt safe there.” He said that the government has made the Pandits a scapegoat for the gunsmiths of the valley.” Bhatt said the entire Pandit community is shocked by this heinous crime.
“Unless the slogan of independence is over, the Kashmiris Pandits must not return”
He said, “LG I strongly appeal to Manoj Sinha to eliminate the terrorists and their sympathizers.

It must be given.” “The killers of my son must be brought to justice,” said Peta Ji Pat, Rahul’s father.
