Ex-gratia for Burhan Wani’s kin cleared by J&K government, Authorities seek objections

Burhan Wani

Jammu and Kashmir Government has cleared ex-gratia to next of kin of 17 persons, including Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani’s brother, killed in militancy-related incidents in the Valley, while giving one week’s time for filing of any objection before formal orders are issued.

Khalid Muzaffar Wani, Burhan Muzaffar Wani’s brother who was pursuing Masters Degree in Political Science from Indira Gandhi National Open University, was killed in firing by security forces in Pulwama district in April 2015, according to local media reports. The army had said that Khalid was an over-ground worker of Hizbul Mujahideen and was killed in an encounter but locals claimed that he had no links with militancy.

According to a notification issued on Monday by deputy commissioner, Pulwama, ex-gratia relief under rules has been cleared by the district-level screening-cum-consultative committee (DLSCC) in favour of next of kin of those persons who died in militancy-related incidents.
