Sheikh Ashiq Ahmad, President, Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Saturday paid tributes to the bravery of Rouf Ahmad Dar, Tourist Guide, who lost his life while saving capsized tourists in Pahalgam. The president stated that Rouf Ahmad Dar had managed to save several precious lives before he lost his own.
The spokesman said that while the administration’s prompt response in recommending bravery award and financial support was highly appreciable, the KCC&I would urge for providing the widow of Late Rouf Ahmad Dar with a permanent Government job. He stated that the KCC&I Relief Trust would also be taking cognizance of the matter and provide required assistance in this regard.
Adventure tourism had its perils and it was always important to follow proper safety procedures and guidelines while carrying out activities which could endanger human lives.
