Srinagar: A fateh khwani was held on Friday at the house of Abdul Qayoom Bhat, father of slain teenager Umar Qayoom Bhat, who was ‘killed in custody’ of Soura police station, on his 7th death anniversary.
Umar was killed by government forces on August 25th during the summer agitation of 2010.
Several people besides pro-freedom leaders attended the ceremony and paid rich tributes to the departed soul. A few Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front members while attending the ceremony addressed the small gathering of people at Malik Saheb Soura, at the ancestral graveyard of Umar.
The family committed to pursue the case till the culprits are brought to justice. “Our struggle for justice will continue till murderers of our son are put behind the bars,” the family said.
