Photo - Prof. K.L. Ganjoo Information

Description: Name: K.L. Ganjoo/Prana Ganjoo

Father's Name/Hubsand's Name: N.N. Ganjoo/K.L Ganjoo

Date of Birth: 4.1.1942

Date of Assassination: 4.11.1990

Residence: Sopore

Survived by son (6), daughter (8)

He was an agro-scientist and worked at the Agriculture college, Sopore. He had wide contacts with Muslims and as a teacher had taught and initiated hosts of learners. Pandits fleeing from their homes and hearths had failed to make an impress on him as he trusted the hollow assurances of his friends and students. He had been to Nepal on an assignment for a short period and returned to his native town in March, 1990. His wife, Prana Ganjoo, and his nephew had accompanied him to Nepal. Two employees of the college went in a Jeep to receive him on the out-skirts of the town. All the three boarded the Jeep and the moment they reached the middle of the Sopore bridge they were pushed out of the vehicle The professor was sprayed over with bullets and hurled into the fast-flowing waters of the Jehlum to meet his watery grave. His nephew was given two options of either jumping into the river or witnessing the torture that his aunt would be put to. Preferring the first option he jumped into the river and fast flowing current of the river buffeted him to safety. The professor's body riddled with bullets was found on the shores of the river.

His wife was barbarically treated. She was gangraped and her breasts were chopped off and finally put to bullets. But the police sources have yet to confirm her killing.
