jammu, June 22: It seems that the sacrifice of Sub Inspector of J&K police, Imran Tak, who attained martyrdom in an attack by militants in Zakura area on the outskirts of Srinagar in November 2017 has gone unnoticed, as his family is running from pillar to post for ex-gratia.
Surprisingly, the erstwhile state government that gave amnesty to stone pelters in Kashmir, apparently denied SRO to the Tak family which lost the only bread earner. "We salute the sacrifice of Rifleman Aurangzeb and also salute India Army and Defence Minister for recognising their fallen comrade. But why is the contribution of my beloved son not recognised", said Abdul Latief Tak, father of Imran.
"None of the politicians and top officers from police and civil administration has met us so far", he said, adding that it's only SHO Basantgarh and SDPO Ramnagar who are in touch with the family.
Latief said that compensation under SRO-43 is being denied to them. "My daughter-in-law (Imran's wife) Gulnaz Akhter is already in government service and she is undergoing training for B.Sc Nursing through department in Kashmir. His daughter in just three years old", Latief said, adding that the police department is not providing employment to his another son who is elder brother of Imran.
Gulnaz Akhter "has given in writing to the department to give compensatory job under SRO-43 to her brother-in-law, as me and my wife are dependent on him", said Latief. He rued that local MLA also didn't bother to pursue the SRO case.
"MLA Ramnagar, RS Pathania assured us to arrange a meeting with the then Chief Minister in March 2018, but it could not be possible and now no government exists in state", he said and added that the family has lost all their hopes.
"As my father and mother are ailing, they cannot travel to Kashmir time and again. We received a letter of from Police Headquarters (PHQ) to complete ex-gratia case", said Muzaffar Hussain Tak, brother of Imran.
"Our family is under stress and trauma", said Muzaffar, adding that nowadays politicians and officers are taking photographs with the families of the martyrs for "cheap publicity and they have nothing to do with the welfare of dependents of martyr."
