KCCI Assesses Loses In Mujgund Gunfight


SRINAGAR — A joint delegation of the Kashmir Chamber of Com­merce and Industry (KCCI) and the KCCI Relief Trust on Thurs­day visited Mujgund to assess the losses to the houses caused in a recent gun battle between the government forces and the militants.

The KCCI team made an assessment of losses caused to the residential houses. The delegation was lead by senior Vice President, Nasir Hamid Khan and Rauf Ahmad Punjabi, Trustee.

Around eight houses were razed to the ground and nine families have been dislo­cated. They found the house­hold goods were also exten­sively damaged during the fire that was caused due to the gun battle that continued for many hours between 8 to 9th De­cember. The KCCI said that “in view of the harsh weather con­ditions, a social and humanitar­ian crisis is imminent.”

“In line with the declared pol­icy of the KCC&I to support vic­tims of violence and who have suffered and continue to suffer under adverse prevailing condi­tions to the extent it is possible, the KCC&I Relief Trust urges all members of the business fra­ternity to come forward in this hour of distress and join hands to provide shelter and basic ne­cessities to the victims,” it said.

The KCCI said that “ those who wishing to help by way of materials and goods may con­tact Manzoor Ahmad Pakhtoon, treasurer, KCC&I or the office of the KCC&I. With the view of organizing relief and rehabili­tation in an efficient manner, we also appeal to other Trust’s and NGO’s to coordinate with Manzoor Ahmad Pakhtoon at the official address of the KCC&I situated at Residency Road, Sri­nagar,” the KCCI said.
