Six family members of Sikh families were cremated today in Rangreth area of Srinagar. The family was living in a rented house in Jawahar Nagar, the area which was massively affected due to floods in Kashmir.
One of the family members says there were 25 people living in the building, and despite asking for help no one arrived. “We couldn’t have even got the bodies. It is only because of the local rescuers that we were able to get the bodies,” said Balwinder Singh, from Amritsar.
“At least 11 bodies are there. They have to be cremated too.”
