Teachers Forum Baramulla expresses grief and shock over Kulgam youth’s suicide Demands time-bound probe into the incident

While expressing shock and grief over the incident of suicide by a 24-year-old youth from Damhal Hanjipora area of South Kashmir's Kulgam district to invite government attention towards the miseries of his family, Teacher Forum's District President Baramulla Ishfaq Ahmad Shah demanded a time-bound probe and fixing of responsibility into the incident. The youth, who was a son of a Government school teacher, was reportedly forced to take an extreme step after his father was denied salary for the past two years. There is a need to hold a proper probe into the incident which led to this teacher’s young son to take such a harsh step. I hope J&K Lieutenant Governor will order a probe into this incident and bring the officers to book whose lackadaisical approach forced the youth to take his life. Such a heartbreaking incident depicts an appalling picture of the families whose salaries have been withheld by the Department for no sins of theirs. If there are more such employees whose salaries have been withheld on flimsy grounds, it is imperative upon the government to release it without any further delay.
