After telecom and killings, Sopore witnesses threats to the labourers


Following the threats to the telecom operators and a series of killings, now a mysterious letter addressed to a mosque head in the apple town of Kashmir has threatened the non local laborers to leave the town in the next three days.

Though it is not attributed to any militant group but there is a clear threat that has been issued to the non local laborers and the landlords who have given shelter to them. According to the official sources the letter was addressed to the Imam of Jamia Masjid, Sopore by an unidentified group. The Imam has been given a three day ultimatum to the non local laborers to leave the area.

The Deputy Inspector General, police, North Kashmir said that the authenticity of the letter is being checked. The recent posters in the region had a reference to the non local laborers too, told the official. These posters had warned the liquor shops, cable operators and gamblers as well.

In Sopore, there are nearly 25,000 non local laborers working in the apple orchids in the region.
