Hundreds bid farewell to slain school teacher and principal in Jammu and Kashmir

JAMMU: Hundreds gathered to bid farewell to the government school teacher and principal who were shot dead by terrorists inside their school in Srinagar on Thursday.
The last rites of slain principal Supinder Kaur were performed by her family at a cremation ground in Karan Nagar area in Srinagar. Hundreds of members of the Sikh community assembled at Kaur’s residence in Aloochi Bagh area and took out a protest march from there, carrying her mortal remains on a stretcher.
A pall of gloom descended as school teacher Deepak Chand’s mortal remains arrived from Srinagar at his home in Patoli Morh in Jammu. Chand is survived by his wife and a three-year-old daughter. He had joined duty in Srinagar on Sunday after performing the rituals of his father’s first death anniversary.
Wrapped in tricolour, Chand’s body was taken to the cremation ground amid slogans ‘Pakistan murdabad, Deepak Amar Rahe’. His family and friends demanded immediate arrest of the culprits responsible for the ‘barbaric act.’
Condolences poured in for the bereaved families. Director General of Police Dilbagh Singh described the killing of the two unarmed civilians in Srinagar as a move to damage and attack the age-old traditional communal harmony in Jammu and Kashmir. He added that the killing of innocent civilians reflects ‘frustration and barbarism’.
