Kashmir News: ‘Kill us all’: Slain Jammu & Kashmir cop’s kin pen open letter to ultras


SRINAGAR: Two days after terrorists abducted and killed J&K CID sub-inspector Imtiaz Mir (30) in Pulwama district, an anonymous, poignant post — probably written by Mir’s friend or relative — addressed to his murderers on his Facebook page went viral even as condolences from friends and well-wishers kept pouring in.

“But when you killed him why didn’t you kill us all? Why didn’t you kill his Mom, Dad, sister, brother and the woman whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life with,” the writer asked helplessly in the Facebook post. “Please come and kill us all… We can’t live without him.”

A Sountehbugh resident, Mir was heading home on Sunday when terrorists intercepted his car at Wahibugh, dragged him out and gunned him down. Police recovered his body later in the evening from Rushmi Nullah. A senior of Mir’s recalled having dissuaded the SI from travelling alone in view of the recent attacks on policemen and volatile security situation in the Kashmir Valley. However, desperate to see his parents, Mir had assured his senior that he had shaved his beard and changed his appearance to hoodwink the terrorists, who wouldn’t “recognise” him.

The anonymous post said, “Wen u killed Imtiaz you killed a loving son of an aged mother… obedient son of an old father… U killed a brother who was the only support of his brother and sister… U killed every dream of a young girl whom he wanted to marry (sic).”

“Most importantly you killed someone who loved his Kashmir and its people… Whose only wish was to see a happy Kashmir… U killed a man who wanted to visit his family… (sic),” read the post.

Referring to Mir as a devout Muslim, the post read: “U killed the most God fearing… deeply religious man… Who would never ever miss even a single Roza in d month of Ramadan (sic).” The post said the slain SI was a brilliant student who had topped his masters and SI batch.

The anonymous Facebook post elicited a massive outrage against the killing, with hundreds of netizens including Mir’s friends, colleagues and well-wishers condemning the crime. Most wrote that after seeing Mir “online”, they were still unable to come to terms with the fact that he really is no more.
