Guidelines issued after killing of migrant labourers in Oct 2021

After selective killings of some migrant labourers, the administration had issued some guidelines to ensure the safety and security of non-local workers.

As per these guidelines, owners have to share all information with local police about the number of migrant workers engaged by them.

Furthermore, it was also directed that populations like migrant labourers and skilled labourers in all the 10 districts of Kashmir Valley shall be identified and adequate measures of security shall be put in place for them. Besides, regular interactions will be conducted with them so that any apprehension with regard to their security is taken care of.
