After militant threats, 5 local journalists resign in Kashmir

Srinagar, Nov 16: Five journalists working for a local newspaper in Kashmir have resigned after militant threats appeared against them on social media.

Militants recently put out a list of over one dozen journalists who were accused of working for security agencies.

The names on the list included two editors of local newspapers.

Of the five journalists who quit on Tuesday, three published their resignations on their social media accounts.

According to the police, The Resistance Front (TRF), an offshoot of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group, is behind these threats.

“The contents of the threats depict the intention of militants and anti-national elements. They have put the lives of people, especially mediapersons, in danger by publicly calling them corrupt and giving a direct threat,” the police said.

An FIR has been registered in this case and around a dozen suspects have been picked up who are currently being questioned, the police added.–(IANS)
