Early Times Report

Srinagar, Oct 8: Supinder Kour, who was shot dead by the terrorists inside her school in Srinagar’s old city, used to spend a part of her salary to raise a Muslim orphan girl.
The 46-year old Kour, headed the Government Boys Higher Secondary School in Eidgah. She and her colleague Deepak Chand were murdered in cold blood on Thursday.
Her inconsolable neighbor said that a few years back, Kour was posted at Government Higher Secondary Chanapora wherein she came to know about a Muslim orphan girl who had nobody to take care of. “The minor girl used to be at her aunt’s place but after the latter got married, the orphan girl had no one to take care of her. I shared the details about the orphan girl with Kour who assured him that she will take care of her expenses. She told me that she will be donating a major chunk of Rs 20,000 from her salary to help the orphan girl. Till her last breath she bore the expenses of the child,” recollected the neighbor.
The deceased is survived by her 11 year old daughter Jasleen Kour and six-year-old son Jasjit Singh.
“The orphan girl has once again become an orphan after losing her Godmother,” the neighbor said.
Hundreds of people joined Supinder Kour’s last journey on Friday. Family members and relatives of the slain school principal staged a silent sit-in outside civil secretariat Srinagar and demanded justice and punishment to the killers.
Wailing over the cold blood murder of slain school principal members of Sikh community kept her body outside the secretariat to seek justice. Senior police officers reached the spot and persuaded the family members of Kour to take her body to Batamaloo cremation ground for last rites.
Hundreds of members of the Sikh community assembled at the residence of Kour in Aloochi Bagh area and took out a protest march from there, carrying her mortal remains on a stretcher towards the Civil Secretariat Srinagar.
The protesting members of the community both old and young alike covered the distance from Aloochi bagh to Jahangir Chowk on foot shouting slogans demanding justice and stern punishment for the victim shot dead by militants at the school along with her colleague Deepak Chand.
Mortal remains of the deceased teacher, Deepak Chand, reached Jammu and his last rites were performed this afternoon.
Chand was laid to rest a Shaktinagar cremation ground in Jammu. A pall of gloom had descended as Chand's mortal remains arrived from Srinagar at his Patoli home around midnight with hundreds of people waiting outside.
Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has said that perpetrators of recent terror attacks will be punished. He has warned those aiding and abetting terrorists that every drop of innocent civilians' blood will be avenged.
“My tributes to the civilians martyred in the terrorist attacks. My heartfelt condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones, the UT administration and the whole country stand in solidarity with the families of the victims in this hour of grief. I am deeply pained and anguished and I promise the family members of the innocent victims that perpetrators of the barbaric acts will be punished soon,” LG said in a statement.
“Again, I assure the people of India and the residents of Jammu and Kashmir that the terrorists and those who harbor such enemies of humanity will not be spared,” he added.
As the spate of targeted killings of minorities rocked Kashmir, a Kashmiri Pandit organization said some employees from the community, who were provided government jobs under a rehabilitation package in 2010-11, have started moving Jammu to quietly fearing for their life, alleging the administration was unable to provide then a secure environment, sources quoted while having said by a Pandit organization.
Several organizations staged protests in various parts of Jammu and Kashmir over the killings and said such violence was the result of frustration among separatists and anti national elements as the region was seeing fast development and peace.
