Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Awami Action Committee (AAC) on Friday paid rich tributes to the ‘martyrs of Gawkadal’ on their 32nd anniversary and said that despite the passage of more than three decades, the families of the victims are still awaiting justice.

In a statement, AAC said, “There are dozens of such incidents where innocent people were killed in broad daylight, the governments announced so-called enquiry commissions but to this day justice is still awaited in all these cases”.

Meanwhile, AAC expresses deep sorrow and grief over the death of a woman and the burning of half a dozen residential houses in a horrific fire incident in Aali Kadal, a densely populated area of Shahar-e-Khaas Srinagar.
