The victim, who funds his studies through modelling, said he continues to live in fear. “The assailants are roaming freely in front of my house and I am not able to attend college as well,” he said.

 

The attacks on individuals with Kashmiri origins have increased following the killing of 44 Indian soldiers in Pulwama suicide blast. Earlier this month, some Kashmiri vendors were thrashed by Indian right-wing extremist party members and it was only recently that a Muslim family in Gurgaon was attacked by a violent mob on Holi.
