Srinagar, May 08: This day in 1991 about 20 unarmed innocent people including five women and an infant of two years got killed after forces started indiscriminate firing on the mourners carrying the dead bodies of persons killed in Dachhigam incident and those killed at Saida kadal locality were being brought for burial at Khanyar.
In this incident five ladies namely Fatima of Khanyar, Shamima of Rainawari, Samina of Rainawari, Dedri of Rajourikadal, Khati of Seshagari Mohalla Khanyar and an infant of two years got killed.
A team of local and foreign media men tried their best to visit the spot but were not allowed by the forces and the Government. However, some media men already accompanying the mourners procession while performing their professional duties have also witnessed the occurrence and agreed that no provocation was offered by anyone from among the mourners procession but forces indiscriminately fired and killed scores of people.
“The authorities did not allow anyone to perform the religious ceremonies. After some time when the firing stopped, people tried to move to their respective places, a group of paramilitary forces coming from Nowhatta started firing again on the passers-by due to which some more persons got killed and number of others injured. This again is clear evidence that innocent people are being killed in Kashmir,” said Ali Muhammad an eye witness of the massacre.
