WITH families of three of the four persons killed in Hyderpora encounter in Srinagar claiming the men were innocent, the encounter has become controversial.

The three families have also demanded the return of the bodies which have been buried by the police quietly in north Kashmir’s Handwara, for proper burial and inquiry.

“I want justice for my husband Dr Mudasir Gul. I want to see his face. My one-year-old daughter wants to see his face. Why you kill Mudasir and why you orphaned my daughter. My daughter is one-year-old and she says only one word ‘baba, baba’. Give her baba back,” said Humaira Mudasir.
