After the recent spate of terrorist attacks on members of minority communities in Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir police has established a minority distress helpline at the police control room, officials said on Monday.

"Kashmir Police have established a minority distress helpline at PCR Kashmir. In case of emergency, one may call for assistance on 0194-2440283," said a tweet by J&K police quoting IGP Kashmir, Vijay Kumar.

In the past few days, many civilians have been targeted by the terrorists. The victims included Kashmiri chemist M.L. Bindroo, Virinder Paswan, a street vendor from Bihar who worked in Kashmir, Mohamamd Shafi from Bandipore, Supinder Kaur, a school principal, Deepak Chand, a school teacher.
