Say armed forces failed to track down attackers even after 3 months

Rajouri: The residents of Dhangir village of Rajouri on Monday said they will return all government aid including ex-gratia relief and jobs as armed forces have failed to track down attackers of the January 01 militant attack.

Addressing a press conference, as per the news agency Kashmir News Observer, the families said that around 3 months have passed since the gruesome attack but there is no clue of attackers, and armed forces and administration are only giving assurances.

“We want justice, not financial aid or jobs. We just don’t need assurances but justice. We are ready for a long agitation and will return all the aid and jobs in protest,” said Saroj Bala, who is now alone in her family as she lost her both sons in the attack.

7 people lost their lives and 13 others were injured after militants resorted to indiscriminate firing in Dhangri village in January, while one more person died after an IED explosion took place in the area the next day.
