SRINAGAR — Family members of a civilian, killed during the Kulgam gunfight on Friday, have sought compensation as the slain was the sole source of income for the family.
Manzoor Lone of Redwani Bala was killed during an encounter between militants and security forces in Kulgam yesterday.
As per news agency KNO, Gowhara, sister of Manzoor, said that his brother was returning home when he was hit by a bullet. She said that Manzoor was married last year and he has left behind her wife and around a 2-month-old baby.
“Administration should provide some compensation to my brother’s family,” she said.
Meanwhile, former MLA Ali Mohammad Dar also sought compensation for the family, stating that the family is poor and is hardly able to make both ends meet.
“We are thankful to the administration for returning the body of the slain. Now, some relief should be provided to the widow and her child,” he said.
