Gunmen Kill 2 School Teachers in Kashmir Amid Mounting Attacks on Civilians

HeadlineOct 08, 2021

Two school teachers in the disputed region of Kashmir were killed Thursday by masked gunmen in what is believed to be the seventh deadly attack against civilians within the past week. A militant group known as the Resistance Front claimed responsibility for the killings. Police say suspected militants have killed 27 civilians in Kashmir this year, where tensions have been steadily growing. In 2019, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tightened control of Kashmir, and groups have also accused the Modi government of repression and severe human rights abuses in the region.
