A 55-year-old lady identified as Sara Begum, w/o Gulam Hassan Teli died of heart attack when forces allegedly pelted stones and attacked entrance gates made of iron, in Chee village of South Kashmir’s Islamabad.
“At around 11:15 PM, my eyes opened when we heard some loud bangs around us and it seemed something is being showered on the tin roofs of residential houses all around in the village,” said Gh Hassan Teli, husband of the deceased.
“My wife, Sara Begum, began trembling as we thought war has begun and then our gate and roof was also showered with, what we later found, bricks and stones,” Teli added.
Daughter of Teli, Arshi accompanied her mother to kitchen.
“I took her to kitchen and as I was pouring water into glass someone started beating our gate violently following which my mother collapsed,” Arshi said.
“We rushed her to District hospital Islamabad where doctors declared her brought dead,” she informed.
“This is purely case of heart attack and her pulse was ceased when she was brought here,” said a doctor at Islamabad hospital.
Locals who had assembled outside Teli’s two storey house said, “announcements were made on Masjid loud speakers and people came out of their houses forcing men in uniform to flee from the village.”
Teli, father of three daughters, one of whom is unmarried, is partially paralysed and terms the action of forces as “new form of terrorism”.
People of the nearby locality said that forces had parked their vehicle one Kilometre away and entered into village by foot.
Deceased Begum was laid to rest this morning.
