Avtar Krishan Bhat, president of a Kashmiri Pandit colony in Baramulla, said that around half of the 300 families living in the area had fled since Tuesday.

"They were terrified after yesterday's killing. We will also leave by tomorrow as we are waiting for a government response," he said. "We had asked the government to relocate us outside Kashmir,” reported Hindustan Times.

According to reports, residents claimed police had sealed off a area in Srinagar and stepped up security around places where Kashmiri Pandit government employees live.
