Kashmir floods: Sikhs cremate 6 bodies among 11 in Srinagar


Cremation in Srinagar


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.”


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
