Srinagar: A Bemina resident Habibullah Mandoo whose son was killed by a “Stray Bullet” in 2008 blamed the District Administration Srinagar for not implementing and honouring the court order regarding the killing of his son Imtiyaz Ahmad Mandoo.
Mandoo said that the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir had ordered the compassionate appointment of her daughter as his son was killed by a “stray bullet” during the protests in Safakadal, Srinagar in 2008.
“I filed a petition in the high court during the year 2009 in the high court stating that I have lost my only son at the hands of the state in 2008 and I am suffering from Cardiac ailment and other multiple ailments hence totally dependent on my daughter for livelihood,’ he said.
The court while passing the orders on the petition in 2013 had directed District Magistrate Srinagar to accord consideration to compassionate appointment of his daughter within four weeks, whenever she approaches office with the necessary documents in support of her claim. “She got nothing except assurances. Even after the passing of 12 years, the district administration neither provided me any compensation nor appointed my daughter in any department,” Mandoo said.
He appealed the authorities to implement the court order. (CNS)
