The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) expressed strong opposition on Saturday to the public release of the transfer list of Kashmiri Pandit employees, demanding action against the officials responsible for the leak, which it described as a security breach, reported Press Trust of India (PTI)

As per the list, 177 Kashmiri Pandit teachers working under the Prime Minister’s Rehabilitation Package have been transferred. The transfer list is being passed around on WhatsApp and other social media sites.

“Making the transfer list public on social media platforms is a big security breach as terrorists now have a clear idea who is posted where,” BJP spokesman Altaf Thakur said in a statement, as per the report.

Thakur urged the government to take notice of the leak and pursue those responsible for making the list public at a time when targeted killings are occurring in the Valley. “Officers participating in the conduct should be reprimanded and action should be taken against them,” said the BJP spokesman, as per PTI.

While the government was taking serious steps to protect Kashmiri Pandits, Thakur said, some officials were playing spoilsport.
