Jammu, March 10: The Jammu and Kashmir government has set up mobile outlets to sell a rare fish to Kashmiri Hindus (Pandits) at migrant camps here on Maha Shivratri — the community’s most popular festival.
The fisheries department began the sale last year. A senior official said the mobile outlets have been set up across the state “in areas where Kashmiri Pandits live”.
About 300,000 Kashmiri Pandits migrated from the Kashmir Valley in 1990 after militancy erupted there. They settled in camps set up by government on the edges of Jammu city.
