Expressing grief over Krishna Dhaba owner's son Akash Mehra's death, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kavinder Gupta on Sunday said the 'targetted' attack is proof that there are still ongoing attempts to oust the 'minorities' from the region.

"We heard the sad news about the death of Krishna Dhaba's owner's son. This type of targeted attack is proof that there are still ongoing attempts to oust the minorities from the region. Because the situation is improving in Jammu and Kashmir, some terrorist organisations are actively trying to create panic in the region," said Gupta.

"We will not tolerate such activities otherwise the situation of 1989-1990 will be repeated. It is very important to stop such attacks,' he added.

The BJP leader further commented that the Indian security forces are doing commendable work to stop terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, but added, "the attacks on Krishna Dhaba and Shakti sweets show there are efforts to bring back the 'militancy in the region."

The son of the owner of popular food joint Krishna Dhaba, who was injured in the terrorist attack on the eatery, succumbed to his injuries on Sunday morning.

"Woke up to extremely distressing news. Young Akash Mehra who was shot at by terrorists at Krishna Dhaba has succumbed to his injuries at SMHS Hospital. I share the pain and grief of his family and stand by them as they mourn this inconsolable loss. May his soul rest in peace," Junaid Azim Mattu, Mayor of Srinagar in a tweet.

On February 17, terrorists belonging to the 'Muslim Jaanbaz Force', an offshoot of proscribed terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba attacked Krishna Dhaba' in Srinagar's Durganag area when 24 foreign diplomats were visiting the union territory.

Two days later, Jammu and Kashmir police arrested three terrorists of 'Muslim Jaanbaz Force' in connection with the attack, which police said was aimed at terrorising non-locals living in the valley and disrupting tourist activity.

The arrested terrorists were identified as Suhail Ahmad Mir, resident of Dangerpora Nowgam, Owais Manzoor Sofi, resident of Dangarpora and Vilayat Aziz Mir, a resident of Hanipora Wampora Pulwama.

The police had said that the arrest of the trio and the recovery of weapon of crime (pistol) and grenade, along with other incriminating material including the bike used by them, within hours of attack is a big success for the Jammu and Kashmir police. (ANI)
