|Shaheed Kuldeep Kumar Dogra sacrifices his life for Amarnath Issue |
Kuldeep Kumar Dogra of Talab Tillo, Jammu joined the hunger strike launched by Amarnath Sangarsh Samiti. He fell unconscious while delivering a speech in protest against remarks of National Conference chief, Omar Abdullah in Parliament that the land to Amarnath shrine Board will be returned only over dead bodies of the Kashmiris. “I would show Mr Abdullah how the people of Jammu too can sacrifice their lives to get back the land” and he sacrificed his life after consuming poison.
Following death of the youth, the activists of AmarnathSangarsh Samiti and other organisations went on a rampage in the City pelting stones on moving vehicles and enforcing a bandh in many areas. Police fired several rounds in the air to disperse the mobs and resorted to cane-charge. Over 300 protesters assembled on the Jammu-Poonch highway. Several activists were picked up by the police and put under preventive detention.
Hindu Shiv Sena announced Rs 15,000 for the bereaved family. Sena has also appealed the Sangarsh Samiti and other social organizations to make generous donations for the bereaved family.
In the next issue of Shehjar, we will be featuring the life of Shaheed Kuldeep Kumar Dogra.
