Father booked for demanding victim son’s body

Srinagar, February 08 : In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, social and political activists have criticised the Indian authorities for registering an FIR against the father of a youth, martyred by the Indian troops in the Lawaypora, Srinagar fake encounter on December 30, 2020, for demanding the dead body of his son for proper burial.

Mushtaq Ahmad Wani, father of Athar Mushtaq Wani from Pulwama, is among seven booked under the draconian Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) by the Indian police.

A police officer confirmed to media that he was booked for organising a protest on Friday, wherein the demonstrators demanded the return of the body.

Eyewitnesses told media that Mr Wani had organised the special prayers at the empty grave dug by him for his son, who was buried far-off on a hillock in central Kashmir to avoid any assembly during the funeral.
