A Report By Faizan Mir
Srinagar : The perpetual strife is taking a serious toll on human lives in Kashmir be those from the security forces, especially police or the common people. While the Hyderpora encounter left two Srinagar families shattered leaving at least five orphans in a life-time shock, the children of two policemen killed in militant strike at Gulshan Chowk, Bandipora was no less shocking.
The two policemen were lone bread winners for their families, who left behind minor children and elderly parents. Policeman Muhammad Sultan (37), one of the slain cops in Bandipora attack, a resident of Shah Wali Muqam area of Sopore in north Kashmir's Baramulla district, was laid to rest at the native graveyard with a large number of people attending his funeral prayers.
Relatives of the slain cop said that he has left behind four children among them two (twins) who are barely four-month old, his wife, and an elderly father.
