Laborers Found Dead

Three daily wagers from the Roop Nagar area of Digiana, Jammu, were found dead in Srinagar under mysterious circumstances. First, the contractor took all three of them to Pahalgam, and later, the family received a phone call that all three of them died in the hospital. The sudden death of three family members has raised several doubts among the family.

While talking to the media, the deceased’s son said, “4-5 days back, my father went to Pahalgam with the contractor. The following day the contractor’s wife arrived at our residence and informed us that our father passed away. We immediately left for GMC Anantnag, and after we reached there, the hospital administration asked us to allow the postmortem of the deceased. Later, when we asked the hospital to take the bodies along with us, they started harassing us. Among three, one was 16-year-old while the other was 35-year-old. My father was 55-year-old”.

The family demanded that the government investigate the deaths of all three persons and assist the families who lost their loved ones.

First Wine Now Bars: Will Mafias Take Over Every Trade in J&K?

Bars

The Wine Association of Jammu constantly raised their voice against the new excise policy. Still, due to the influence of mafias from other states, the UT introduced the policy. A similar case is happening with the bars of Jammu, which have been closed for the past 15 days. The UT Government has asked the bar’s owners/operators to get their license to renew, and for the renewal, the government has issued several guidelines. 

 

There is a guideline that all the bars and hotels have bars to have proper parking space among the guidelines. However, around 80% of bars and restaurants don’t have a parking facility. So the question arises: where was the government when the plan for such bars/restaurants was passed?  

 

Regarding the same JK Media executive talked with the Wine Association President. While speaking, he said, “these bars have been established for many years, and now the government is asking them to make parking facilities. How’s this possible? The NOC procedure is only for the first time when the licenses for the bar has to issue. The UT government is trying to destroy J&K. We demand that the government revise the excise policy”.

Coronavirus

Coronavirus cases in Srinagar have shown over a two hundred per cent increase since mid-August as the positivity rate has gone up from 0.5 per cent to 1.34 per cent, reveals official data. This massive jump in positivity rate comes when reports of violation of COVID Appropriate Behavior (CAB) pour in from different areas of the district.

 

Nodal Officer COVID mitigation Srinagar Owais Mushtaq said that the positivity rate has jumped from 0.5 per cent to 1.35 per cent since mid-August this year. He informed that Srinagar has 773 active cases, 54 are under hospital quarantine, and the rest are in-home quarantine.

 

The district administration maintains records of the COVID19 cases daily, and then the data is also used to culminate records to assess the COVID19 situation. In just seven days, Srinagar reported 474 positive cases, the highest among all-district. Moreover, the daily data issued by authorities reveal that Srinagar has said the highest number of cases among all districts of Kashmir during these seven days.

 

The medical experts believe that the main reason for the spread of infection is the delta variant coupled with non-adherence to CAB. Mushtaq stressed that CAB is a must to avoid or minimise the predicted third wave of coronavirus. “Most of the people are seen without facemasks in markets and public transport. At some markets, social distancing is also going for a toss,” he said.
