On the night of August 12, Mohammad Ashiq and Mohammad Anzar, residents of Bihar, were panicking towards the site where, like them, Mohammad Amrez, a 19-year-old Kashmiri worker, was shot dead by suspected extremists in the darkness .

Mohammad Ashiq and Mohammad Anzar reached the spot quietly, both of them had arrived after a long distance. However, Mohammad Amrez was neither his relative nor acquaintance. Yes, he was sure he belonged in his own city and his own state.

Mohammad Anzar said, “When a laborer from Bihar was killed in Pulwama last week, our colleagues told us to wait a few more days to see what happens. We agreed with them. Now it has happened again same”. murders When these incidents happen, there will be fear. Since we’ve been here, we’ve only been seeing action. When there is no value of human life here, then we will stay here What will we do? We have seen and visited Kashmir and won it. Why would we stay in Kashmir now?”
