Man axed to death, 3 held
Shadipora (Bandipora), Sep 9: A 33-year-old man was axed to death during an ‘altercation’ between two families at Kawpora village in Shadipora here on Friday.
Locals said the ‘dispute’ surfaced between the families of Ghulam Muhammad Kawa and Mukhtar Ahmad Kawa few days back. “Both families exchanged heated arguments on Thursday evening, but locals managed to defuse the tension. However, the situation again took an ugly turn on Friday when members of both the families met in Rice mill where they had an altercation with each other. The locals managed to pacify the situation. But the families again entered into an altercation during which Hanief Ahmed Kawa son of Ghulam Muhammad Kawa was allegedly caught and hit by the neighbours with an axe,” locals said, adding the unconscious Hanief was shifted to Sumbal hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Tension gripped the area and adjoining villagers over the murder after which police and huge contingents of CRPF were deployed.
Alleging police inaction, the locals told Greater Kashmir that this brutal act might have been avoided if police has acted on time in response to the public representations.
They said “We informed the higher ups in the police about the growing rift between the families, but they didn’t paid any attention which resulted into this brutal murder.”
According to police, the autopsy of Hanief’s body was conducted and a case under section 302 registered.
Police said three of the accused had been arrested.
