Early Times Report
Baramulla, June 13: Bullet and blood has scared everyone, this time the separatists did not condemn these brutal killings despite families of victims having lost their sole bread earners forever.
On June 12, two policemen were killed and another injured in a militant attack in Pulwama district of south Kashmir.
The deceased Ghulam Rasool Lone of Gagal Lolab Kupwara attained martyrdom yesterday at Pulwama during militant attack at new District Court Complex Guard. "Wife of the deceased Haleema Begum is in a shock, she could not utter a word, she is just looking for her husband, and we tried to console her," said relative of the deceased.
Locals from the vicinity visited the house of the deceased and expressed solidarity with the bereaved family, the deceased left behind his widow Halima Begum, her two minor sons Azhar Rasool 12, Basit Rasool 7, and daughter Misbah Rasool 9, the children are yet to believe that there deceased father is no more.
However, the killings of the policemen were widely condemned by leaders, including chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, and opposition and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, but separatists did not utter a word.
Another relative of the slain cop told Early Times that without sole bread earner; Yum-e Arfa or Eid-ul Fiter means nothing to us, the children have been orphaned and who will take care of them, adding Islam doesn't permit the killing of anybody and that too in the month of Ramadhan.
The family members of late constable Ghulam Mohammad of Wuluthra Rafiabad are also in a deep shock, the killing of their family head has shattered their dreams, and the children of the deceased were promised that they will get some gifts on this Eid-ul Fitr.
The children were waiting for his father as he has promised him that he will visit home only after the Eid and get some gifts for them.
They were aware that they have to celebrate Eid without their father as they believe that most of the cops on field duty usually do not join their families on Eid festivals.
Unfortunate part of the story is that father and brother of the deceased cop are handicapped. His wife is home maker, and the whole family was dependent on late Ghulam Mohammad, said local resident of Wuluthra, Sijad Ahmad.
Meanwhile, ADGP Armed, J&K visited the residence of martyred Const. Ghulam Mohammad at Wahlitra Rafiabad to extend deepest sympathies with the bereaved family.
Special DGP Hqrs, PHQ, J&K, Srinagar and Shriram Dinkar Ambarkar, SP Kupwara visited the house of Martyr SgCt. Ghulam Rasool Lone at Lolab today to express solidarity with the family.
