VICTIMS OF MISHAPS
…And his expeditions ended forever
Srinagar, July 19: From trekking to holidaying in forests in his leisure, Nadeem finally settled for a professional course in Tourism.
In his early 20s he was trying his best to make his name in Kashmir’s tourism industry. But luck had something else for him.
On Monday morning, he left for an expedition in Ganderbal but enroute he breathed his last when the car he was travelling in was hit by a police bus and he received serious injuries.
Nadeem was born in Hardaboora Tangmarg on March 15, 1985. After schooling in Tangmarg, he did his Bachelors in Tourism from Amar Singh College.
In 2006, he went to Bangalore for Masters in Tourism Administration.
There too this nature lover spent some time exploring forests.
After returning from Bangalore, in 2009, he looked for a job back home but couldn’t get one.
Finally, he opted for teaching Tourism in a private institute in Srinagar.
Nadeem would often spent nights in prayers particularly at the shrine of Makdhoom Sahib (RA).
But the fateful day ended his ambitions forever when the police bus hit his car.
Nadeem’s death triggered massive protests in his home area of Shalteng as the locals took to streets.
Nadeem is survived by a younger brother, also injured in the accident, two sisters and his parents who now have nothing but his memories to share.
