25-year-old found dead in Srinagar, family alleges murder

Srinagar: A 25-year-old man who had gone with ‘Tableeghi Jamaat’ was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Rambagh area of central Kashmir’s Srinagar district on Saturday morning, with family alleging the murder of their beloved.

Reports said that a man identified as Salman Irshad Wani (25), son of Irshad Ahmad Wani and a resident of Rambagh was found dead by the locals, following which they informed the police.

As the body reached his home for last rites, a pall and gloom descended on the area while the family alleged the murder of their beloved.

The family members said, “We were waiting for him to return and have dinner with us. We called him several times, but he didn’t respond. This morning, we received a call from the police saying that your son was found dead in Rambagh, Srinagar.”

“He was kind-hearted and religious. He used to offer five times salah and even had no bad habits,” they said, adding that he was out of his home with the Tableegi Jamat.

“He used to call us and show us the Jammat members he was with. We don’t know what happened to him and how he was found dead in Rambagh.”

“We request the authorities to conduct a fair and legal investigation into the matter and find the murderer because it is not in any way a natural death,” they added. (GNS)
