Hindus have always been on the target of terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir and have been killed by Pakistan backed ultras.

In a pre-dawn attack on 30 April, 2006, terrorists raided seven hamlets around Kulhand village in Doda district and massacred 22 Hindu men, women and children.

Eleven persons were wounded and nine of them were flown to the medical college here for treatment. The jungle nearby was being combed, from where bodies of some persons trying to flee were recovered.

13 more bodies of Hindus, who were kidnapped from neighboring Basantgarh in Udhampur district were spotted near Lolan Gala.

Group of heavily armed Pakistan backed terrorists belonging to the Lashkar-e-Toiba in combat uniform asked residents of these hamlets to come out of their houses around 2.30 am and divided them on the basis of religion.

They were taken to the house of Jagdish Lal Bhagat in Goila hamlet and shot dead. Several persons tried to escape, but were fired upon indiscriminately by the terrorists.

By the time Army and police personnel reached the village in the morning, the terrorists fled.

Villagers carried the injured to the district hospital at Doda as the village was a three-hour trek from the road.
