10 yrs on, slain policeman’s family awaits justice

Ailing Parents Seek Chief Minster’s Intervention To Clear Compassionate Appointment Case


Aythmulla (Bandipora), Nov 5: Ailing parents of a deceased policeman from Ayhtmulla village of Bandipora are moving from pillar to post for the past 10 years to get a SRO case (job to kin of deceased) cleared and formalities completed. The aggrieved family has now sought Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s intervention.
 Stating that their SRO case is pending clearance for the past many years, Khazar Muhammad Mala—whose son Reyaz Ahmed Mala died in a mine blast—told Greater Kashmir that he is fighting for justice for the past 10 years and government has failed to provide the same to the family despite losing their lone son—who was the only source of income for the family.
 Malla, 80, lost his son (a constable No.559/CID) in October 2002 in a mine blast at Sopore. “We lost our son, who was the only financial support to the family. We were hopeful that the government will help us and provide every support but we were subjected to immense torture in different offices,” said Khazar Muhammad.
 From the Deputy Commissioner to Chief Minister’s Office, Khazar Muhammad said he is after the file for 10 years. “Me and my husband are both in a poor state of health. We are hardly able to meet our medical expenses,” said Raja Begum, mother of the deceased policeman. “It is unfortunate that we are made to roam from pillar to post to get the SRO case cleared. My son served the state and this is how we are treated after his death.”
 Khazar Malla had in 2003 filed an application seeking benefits under SRO 43 of 1994 and in April 2011, the AIG (P) of Director General of Police J&K informed the Home Department about Malla’s application under No. PERS.-A/3/2004.22/80-88 seeking age relaxation for the brother of the deceased. However the file is allegedly pending in the Home Department.
 “We appeal the Chief Minster Omer Abdullah to intervene in the matter so that we can get justice,” Khazar Muhammad said.
