the novel coronavirus outbreak.
While police said that no family approached them, the two
families denied it, saying “not only police, we approached the
deputy commissioner Shopian as well.”
The families claim the slain include Ashiq Ahmad Magray of
Ganavpora and Asif Ahmad Dar of Bungam Shopian. They said
both were affiliated with Hizb-ul-Mujahideen.
“As soon we came to know about their killing, we approached
police and Deputy Commissioner Shopian. They told us to wait
and despite our imploring that not more than six persons amid
pandemic will participate in their funerals, they took bodies to
Baramulla,” Ghulam Nabi Magray, uncle of Ashiq Ahmad Magray
told GNS. Magrey said he identified his nephew through
photographs which went viral on social media soon after the
encounter was over.
Rafi Ahmad Dar, brother of Asif Ahmad Dar said he called him

shared the message with a concerned police officer,” he said,
adding, “The pictures (of the bodies) are clear and we have
no doubt they are our kin.”
A police officer told GNS that the slain were unidentified and
nobody approached them before the bodies were taken to Sheeri
Baramulla, one of the places in Kashmir Valley where foreign
militants or those who remain unidentified are normally buried.
Asked if the bodies would be handed over to the families as they
claim them to be their kin, the police officer said: “We had
already taken their sample (slain militants). If any family claims
that they were their kin they have to follow the procedure.”
He said once the DNA samples are received, they would be
matched with the concerned families. (GNS)
