Shopian: Shopian family has demanded a probe into the death of a laborer in Himachal Pradesh.
A few days back, a laborer from South Kashmir’s Shopian district allegedly slipped to death in Himachal Pradesh.
The laborer identified as Gulzar Ahmed Khan, a resident of Shadab Karewa was doing labor in Himachal Pradesh.
“We were informed that Gulzar Ahmed slipped from the slope of a hillock while on the job. Actually, he had gone missing and his body was found after 3 days in the Himachal Forest. We request LG Manoj Sinha and Jammu and Kashmir Police to take up the issue with the Himachal Pradesh government so that the actual reason behind his death could be ascertained,” the family members of the slain laborer told news agency Kashmir News Trust.
“Gulzar was young and healthy. Before his death he had gone missing in Himachal Pradesh. We tried our best to contact him but failed,” they said. (KNT)
