Srinagar: Family members and relatives of slain school principal Friday staged a sit-in outside civil secretariat Srinagar and demanded justice.
Witnesses said members of Sikh community, majority of whom were family members and relatives of slain school principal Supinder Kour, who was shot dead along with her colleague Deepak Chand, at Government Higher Secondary School (GHSS) Sangam, Eidgah, Srinagar, walked on foot from Aloochibagh to Civil Secretariat.
“The family members of Kour were carrying her body on a stretcher and when they reached the Civil Secretariat, they staged a silent-sit-in,” witnesses said.
Senior police officers reached the spot and persuaded the family members of Kour to take her body to Batamaloo cremation ground for last rites. However, the family members of slain Kour demanded “justice and stern punishment to the killers” before proceeding for cremation ground.
Meanwhile, scores of members from the Sikh community participated in the last rites of Kour’s cremation at Batamloo cremation ground amid slogans— “We want justice…Punish the culprits…” (KNO)
