Violence in Kashmir valley
Jammu, Aug 4: In an inevitable fallout of the raging violence in Kashmir, travellors are dropping plans to visit the valley while the people from outside the state working with central government organisations are fleeing the violence-torn areas.

After a series of attacks on the railway stations in Sopore and Budgam, the non-Kashmirs working with central government organisations, including the railways and nationalised banks, are leaving the state, a news agency report said.

"There was stone throwing and the crowds would move menacingly. It was becoming difficult for us to survive there," an employee of the railways working in Sopore railway station is quoted as saying.

Over hundred 'scared' employees of railways working in the Valley have reportedly landed in Jammu and have have sought transfers.

"We face a threat to our lives. There is no security for us," an employee of a nationalised bank told the news agency.
