Militant’s family stages protest, demands his body for last rites
SRINAGAR, Jul 9: Emotional scenes were witnessed at Press Enclave this evening after the family members of Mudasir Ahmad Bhat of Barzulla area held protest here requesting police to handover the dead body of slain militant to them for burial.

Mudasir who was initially dubbed as a foreign militant killed during encounter with government forces in Kichhama forests in frontier Kupwara last month, proved to be a local youth from Barzulla who had joined militant ranks in the year 2016.

“Handover the body of our beloved brother, for god’s sake let us perform his last rites” said wailing and mourning sister of slain militant who was one amongst scores of females appeared at Press Enclave demanding dead body for burial.

The protesters alleged despite completing all requisite formalities including DNA sampling for exhumation, the family has been forced to run from pillar to post by the police for want of dead body.

Protesting family members including sisters, cousin sisters and aunts of the Mudasir appealed DG police to intervene so that the body will be handed over to the family for burial.

“Scalp sample of my father has already been taken by the police for DNA sampling, but the report which usually takes twenty-four hours is yet to reach. This is an irony that dead body of a son is not being handed over to his father,” said Quansar Jabeen elder sister of Mudasir.

She said despite identification of the body by family, police asked them to conduct DNA sampling to clear air on the issue.

“We did what we were asked to do; police seems playing tricks with us. We even brought the issue into the notice of ADGP Law and Order, Muneer Ahmad Khan who directed police to handover the body but nothing was done,” she added.

Quansar said since Mudasir was the local militant, police is bounded to handover the body to his family so that his last rites are performed according to Islamic rules.

The protesters warned the police of massive protests in case the dead body of Mudasir is not handed over to them within next two days.
