Man killed by daughter's in-laws after verbal spat turns ugly in Sonawari


BANDIPORA: Panic gripped Naidkhai locality in Sonawari area of north Kashmir's Bandipora district when the news spread in the area that an old man has been killed allegedly by his close relative.

Reports said that a man identified as Gh Ahmad Waza of Wazpoora Naidkhai was killed when a verbal spat between two families turned ugly on an issue of family matter.

"On May 6th, I along with my father went to my pregnant sister's in-laws at Shadipora Sumbal to enquire and to settle an issue of harassment in which my sister's in-laws and her husband had beaten  her," Ejaz Ahmad Waza, son of the deceased said.

He said, "Few days ago, we took our sister to our home for few days, but after 15 days, her husband Wasim Ahmad took her wife forcefully and beat her on the way at Shadipora and left her isolated in the midway during evening time."

A pregnant Sana (name changed) said, "He snatched my phone and purse. I had nothing with me. There was darkness when he was beating me and he left me alone. For a couple of minutes, I felt I will die soon."

She further said, "Fortunately, I found a man on the road and I requested him for a phone call, then I called my father and told him all that I faced."

"When my father raised the issue of harassment with the father-in-law of my sister and his family members, they turned violent and inspite of listening to us, attacked my father with lathi, resulting in critical injuries to him," Ejaz, brother of Sana added.

He further said that they rushed the injured to the hospital, where he, after remaining under treatment for four days, succumbed to his injuries.

The family of the deceased have demanded that their father's killers be punished as soon as possible so that justice can be done with them. They said that they have lodged a report in the nearby police station in this connection.

When contacted, police station officers said that they have registered a case under FIR No. 72/2020 U/S 341, 324 IPC in this connection and investigation is going on.
