Three years after the killing, family still awaits justice

THE FAMILY MEMBERS of Ram Lal, who along with three other porters was allegedly killed in a fake army encounter in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir in April 2004, still cannot come out of the grief and disa sociate themselves from the cherished moments spent with Ram Lal. “The time when Ram Lal left his family, his wife was pregnant and a son was born after his death. Ram Lal being the eldest among five brothers was the main bread earner for the family. Like Ram Lal’s family, family of another victim Bhushan Lal a resident of Mangu Chak has also been living in miserable conditions. The hope to get justice has kindled among the family members as the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, on June 23, 2007, issued notices to Union of India through Secretary Defence, Chief of Army Staff, General Officer Commanding Northern Command, Chief Secretary J&K State, DC Kupwara, SSP Kupwara, DC Jammu and 12 officers/officials 18 RR.

The family members of deceased filed a writ petition and asked for the investigation of the alleged fake encounter by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and compensation of Rs 10 lacs each to the legal heirs of deceased.
