Mother of Mushtaq Ahmad Burza and Masood Ahmad Burza, the promoters of Ahad Hotels chain, also known as Heeven Groups, passed away Friday evening. She was not feeling well for some time, family sources said.
Burza’s mother’s demise coincided with the brand launch of one of their major properties in Srinagar. The group has tied up with ITC group under which its Heeven Resort Srinagar was renamed Fortune Resort Heeven. The function was to be presided over by the Chief Minister Ms Mehbooba Mufti.
However, the sudden demise of the senior member of the Burza family sent the entire clan into an instant mourning. The function was cancelled.
The hotel chain has negotiated the deal of joining hands with the ITC almost two years back. Under the arrangement, the ITC will help them manage their property better and train their human resource in better hospitality services. The tie-up involves the group’s properties in Srinagar and Pahalgam.
