Srinagar: PC President Sajad Gani Lone today paid an emotional tribute to the two policemen Mohammad Sultan and Fayaz Ahmad killed in Bandipora on Friday.

While taking to micro blogging site Twitter to express anguish, Sajad said that the decades long violence in Kashmir has left behind an army of orphans.

“20 years ago, a policeman from Bandipore was killed alongside my father. My father was killed too. Saw photos of orphaned daughter and son. 20 years. No change in savagery. Remember just because today’s orphan doesn’t belong to you doesn’t mean tomorrow’s orphan won’t belong to you”, he tweeted.

In another tweet he expressed serious concern over the tendency to reduce death to a mere statistic in Kashmir.

“The other policeman killed is from Lalpora Lolab. Fayaz Ahmed Lone. I knew him personally. The biggest threat that we as people face is that death has become a statistic.  A good statistic and a bad statistic depending which side of the ideological divide you are on”, he said.

Incidentally the policeman killed alongside Abdul Gani Lone had left behind one young child and an unborn child, who was orphaned before his birth. (KNS)
