Relatives Couldn’t Share Saidpora Family’s Grief

KL Report


After the killing of 35 year old youth, Altaf Ahmad Wani on Wednesday, city’s Saidapora locality continues to remain tense. Agitated people pelted stones on forces and chanted pro freedom slogans.

Most of the relatives and friends of the family couldn’t share the grief of the family due to restrictions. Altaf, the family’s lone bread winner was killed in CRPF firing on Wednesday. Curfew was subsequently clamped in Valley.

“Relatives couldn’t reach at Saidapora. All roads leading to the locality were under siege. No one was allowed to move. It is very unfortunate that on one hand innocent people are being killed and on other hand relatives are not allowed to participate in last rites of deceased.  It seems as if mourning demise is not permissible in Valley”, Wani’s neighbors told a local news agency, KNS. They said that though the loss of family is irrevocable but to stop kith and kin to share a grief of family is condemnable.

Wani is survived by four minor daughters, wife, aged father and ailing mother.
