‘Authorities Yet to Honour Court Verdict in Bemina Youth’s Killing’

KL Report


A Bemina resident, whose son was killed by a stray bullet in 2008 Friday alleged that despite Court directions, the administration neither compensated him nor provided government job to his only daughter.

Habibullah Mandoo father of deceased Imtiyaz Ahmad Mandoo told CNS that the Jammu and Kashmir High Court had directed government to consider the case of compassionate appointment of her daughter, as his lone son was killed after a stray bullet hit him during protests at Safakadal Srinagar in 2008.

“I had filed a petition in 2009 in the High Court stating that I lost my only son at the hands of state in 2008 and i am suffering from cardiac ailment and is exclusively dependent on my daughter for livelihood. The court while passing orders on the petition in 2013 had directed District Magistrate Srinagar to accord consideration to compassionate appointment of my daughter within four weeks from the date she approaches the office with necessary papers in support of her claim. But even after the expiry of two years neither the district administration provided me any compensation nor appointed my daughter in any government department,” Mandoo said.

He appealed to authorities to look into the matter and honour the court directions.
