Family visits grave of martyred Burhan Koka after a month in IOK

Srinagar, May 29 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, family members of a top martyred mujahid commander visited his grave in Sonmarg area of Ganderbal district to offer Fateha after a month.

Indian troops had martyred the youth, Burhan Koka, along with his two associates during a cordon and search operation launched by Indian troops in his native Melhora village in Shopian on April 28, this year.

The occupation authorities did not hand over the bodies of Burhan Koka and his associates to their families and buried them in an Indian Army-run graveyard in Sonmarg area of Ganderbal district.

Media reports said that nine family members of Burhan Koka, including two children, visited the graveyard and offered Fateha on his grave.

It is to mention here that under an inhuman practice, Indian authorities are now denying the bodies of the martyred youth to their families and burying them in the Indian Army-managed graveyards far away from their native areas. The move is aimed at preventing people from participating in huge numbers in the funerals of the martyred youth and to prevent anti-India demonstrations against their killings.
