M M PARVAIZ/MUHAMMAD TASKEEN
Gool (Ramban), July 19: This mountainous village of Ramban district Friday laid its four inhabitants, mostly in their mid thirties, to rest amid tearful eyes and gloomy faces.
After yesterday’s killings by paramilitary BSF and the resultant protests, the situation remained peaceful but tense in the area. The residents took to streets and held peaceful protest demonstrations, seeking justice for those killed.
Four persons were killed when BSF personnel opened fire on protesters in Dharam village of Gool yesterday. Bodies of the deceased persons, identified as local Imam Abdul Lateef son of Nizam-ud-Din, Javeed Ahmed son of Abdul Sattar, R/o Gui Batash, Gool, Farooq Ahmed Beg son of Ghulam Ahmed Beg of Salbia, Gool, and Manzoor Ahmed Shan S/o Abdul Rehman Shan of Gool, were brought to their native places last night.
Lateef and Javeed were laid to rest at their ancestral graveyard at Sakbuam Gool, while Farooq and Manzoor were buried at Gool. “Hundreds of people from across Gool and Ramban participated in the funeral and chanted pro-freedom and anti-BSF slogans,” eyewitnesses told Greater Kashmir.
They said after the burial, the locals took out a protest march demanding immediate action against the BSF personnel responsible for the sacrilegious act and killing of innocent villagers. However, the protest passed off peacefully.
