Security For Fazal Haq Qureshi
FAMILY DECLINES; GOVT INSISTS
Srinagar, Dec 30: A day after senior Hurriyat Conference (M) leader, Fazal Haq Qureshi, was discharged from SK Institute of Medical Sciences Soura, government has put in place the requisite security around the house where he is putting up.
Qureshi, an executive member of the amalgam, was critically injured in a fatal attack on December 4 when unidentified assailants attacked him outside his house in the Soura locality.
He has been shifted to the house of Dr Abdul Majid Qureshi, his brother, after discharge from the hospital.
“We had declined the security, but police kept four of its men in civvies to guard the house. The SHO Soura also offered quarter in security zone for Qureshi. However, we refused,” Musadiq Adil, acting president Peoples Political Front told Greater Kashmir.
A senior police official said that Qureshi wasn’t in a position to comment whether he needs security or not.
“Till then it is our duty to provide security to him. 4-5 policemen will guard his residence,” he said.
Qureshi, who was lying on the bed, spoke few words with this correspondent. “It was mercy of Allah that I survived,” he said in a choked voice. However, when asked about the details of the attack, the Hurriyat leader closed his eyes. His relatives surrounding Qureshi asked this correspondent not to ask such queries.
“Doctors have strictly told us that he should not face any kind of stress. So please don’t ask such questions,” Qureshi’s brother, Dr Abdul Majid said.
“He refused to read newspapers in the morning as he is yet to overcome the shock,” he added.
On behalf of Qureshi family, Dr Majid thanked all the well-wishers who supported them throughout these days. “We are thankful to SKIMS doctors, friends, relatives neighbours and political leaders who helped us all these days,” he said.
