The body is not being given to the family! Police personnel in Kashmir will bury the dead militants


Bengali Hunt Desk: Jammu and Kashmir police have decided that from now on, the bodies of dead terrorists will not be handed over to their families. According to a report in News18, the main reason for this is that the funeral process of the militants is crowded with people. Crowds are banned across the country due to corona. And for this reason, the police are now burying the bodies of the militants.

According to sources, the body is being cremated by the local administration under the supervision of a magistrate. According to a senior officer of the Jammu and Kashmir Police, ‘in the presence of the family, the final reforms are carried out with discipline according to religious rules. DNA samples are also protected. ” Referring to Afzal Guru, who was responsible for the attack on Parliament, the police official said, “We are legally obliged to give the bodies to the family members.” For example, after the execution of Afzal Guru, he was buried in Tihar Jail, Delhi in the presence of family members.

Four jihadists linked to al-Qaeda and another militant group in Kashmir were buried in a government cemetery on April 22, police said. The papers clearly state that Tariq Ahmed Bhat, a resident of Shopia district, and Basharat Shah, a resident of Pulwama, and Ukil Ahmed were buried in the graveyard in front of their family members. However, the family of Uzair Ahmed Bhat, a militant killed in an army encounter in Baramulla district of north Kashmir, did not attend the funeral procession.

Incidentally, hundreds of people attended the funeral of Jaish-e-Mohammed militant Sajad Nawab in Sopore this month. A large crowd also attended the funeral of Mohammad Ashraf Malik, a Hizbul militant from Kulgam. This is the first time since the repeal of Section 370 from Jammu and Kashmir that so many people have attended the funeral of a militant.
