KHURSHEED’S KILLING SHATTERS KUPWARA FAMILY
Kupwara, Oct 31: A 26-year old widow, Yasmeena Begum, is inconsolable even 3-months after her husband’s death. Her life partner Khursheed Ahmed fell to the bullets of police and paramilitary CRPF troopers in this frontier district on August 1 during the present unrest.
Khursheed of Shumnag Kupwara, according to locals, was killed in “unprovoked firing” by forces’ after he left his house to see if he could ferry a marriage party in his Sumo to the neighboring Dardsun village.
“Forces fired on him near Khazanmutti Kralpora- Shumnag road. Prior to the incident they had dispersed a peaceful protest march near Khazanmati on the Kralpora-Shumnag road by firing tear smoke shells and baton charge,” locals said.
“Despite receiving bullets all over his body, he managed to crawl but he was again beaten by the men in uniform. Their intention was to kill him. His 19-year old nephew, Owais, who tried to rush him to the hospital was beaten and later shot at and injured by the force personnel,” they added.
Later a few locals somehow managed to rescue the seriously injured Khursheed but he died on way to Kupwara hospital.
His wife Yasmeena Begum is yet to come to terms with life. She cannot believe that her husband is no more. Khursheed has also left behind 2-year-old daughter Alana, who is too young to realize that her Papa has died.
Yasmeena originally a resident of Sikkim "Parameena Roy" who converted to Islam loved Khursheed like anything, married him against the will of her parents and relatives in 2006. Since then she had been living with him happily at her in-laws home.
Alana, a little cute baby lying in mother’s lap and dressed shabbily does not know that she will never see her father again. Dejected mother even fails to console her baby who cries most of the times.
“I have lost everything. I loved him more than my life now how am I supposed to live,” she screamed.
She said that they were planning to visit Sikkim after a long time but he went on a journey leaving me and my daughter alone from where he will never return.
“He faced lot of problems but he never made me feel that I was hundreds of miles away far from my parents,” Yasmeena said.
“The temptation of do anything has ended after his death. I am worried about the future of my daughter,” she added.
