The family and relatives of the slain militant Mudasir Ahmad, 31, of Parigham village of South Kashmir’s Kulgam district while shouting slogans of justice and displaying placards which read “We want the body of Mudasir Ahmed,”  “We want justice,” demanded to handover the slain Mudasir’s body to his family.

The family also accused the government of delaying formalities of handing over bodies to them.

Mudasir, a physical teacher by his profession at Government Middle School in Frisal Shivporah, Kulgam, was missing since March 17, 2017. Later when the pictures were out, he was identified by his family.

Earlier on May 25, the army claimed of killing five militants along LOC in Tangdar who tried to infiltrate and circulated the pictures of the slain militants. In the army statement, the killed militants were stated as foreigners.

But out of the five killed militants, two were claimed by the south Kashmir families. They now demand the return on their bodies.
