Awantipora: The family of 50-year-old Hameeda Begum, who was killed in south Kashmir’s Noorpora village on Wednesday, has no clue about the killers, even as it has lost its surviving head.
Ghulam Rasool, brother of the victim, told Kashmir Reader that they had no idea who the killers were.
“For the whole day (on Wednesday), she was busy attending to the orchard along with her son, Danish Ahmad. In the evening, she was shot dead when Danish had gone to pray. He rushed back after hearing gunshots,” Rasool said, adding that Danish saw his mother in a pool of blood.
“Her two sons are most unfortunate because they lost their surviving caretaker,” Rasool said.
Hameeda’s husband had died when a wooden pole fell on his head, he said.
“Now they lost their mother in another tragic incident.”
The deceased was killed after unidentified gunmen barged into her house.
Her funeral was performed late Wednesday night, with hundreds of people participating in her Namaz-e-Janazah.
Meanwhile, police has registered an FIR in the case.
