Srinagar, Nov 17: The family of Dr Mudasir Gul, who as per police was killed "in crossfire" during a gunfight in Hyderpora Srinagar two days ago, Wednesday staged a protest at press colony to seek his body.
Police said four people, including a foreign militant and his associate from J&K's Ramban district, were killed in the gunfight on Monday night. As per IGP Kashmir, Vijay Kumar, Mohammad Altaf Bhat, the owner of the building where the gunfight took place and one Mudasir Gul, an OGW as per police were killed "in cross fire" a claim contested by their families.
Slain Mudasir's wife, Humaira who among other family members staged a protest at press enclave Srinagar stated that her two-year-old daughter has been crying seeking her father, but she had no answers to her.
Humaira asked Kashmir Police to come up with proof that her husband was an OGW as claimed by the latter, reported news agency KNO.
"My husband had no militant links and was earning his livelihood in a clean manner,” she said.
She claimed that slain Mudasir had a lunch with police officers at a marriage party at Rawalpora recently. "How come the police label him as OGW,” she said.
The protesting family urged LG Manoj Sinha and police authorities for last rites and to allow his daughter see her father for the last time.
“We appeal LG Manoj Sinha and IGP Kashmir to return the body of Dr Mudasir so that his daughter can see him one last time and we all could bid him a final adieu,” the protesters said.
