Photo - Durga Nath Rafiz Information

Description: Name: Durga Nath Rafiz

Father's Name: Jia Lal Rafiz

Date of Birth: 11.10.1942

Date of Assassination: 3.6.1992

Residence: Jawahar Nagar, Srinagar

Survived by wife (45), son (23), daughters (20, 17)

He was a Sub-Inspector in Border Security Force and was posted at Pantachowk. His house at Jawahar Nagar had three shops, two of them were already let out and the third one was to let. A Muslim contacted him for tenancy of the shop that was locked up. Durga Nath out of good faith unlocked the shop for the person who desired to have a look of it. Terms and conditions were set and settled and the would - be tenant as per settlement was required to pay Rs.10,000 in advance. He fixed the day on which he would come to pay the advance money and lock the shop. As per promise the Muslim turned up and called on Durga Nath who came out to see him. He requested him to accompany him to his house where he would pay him the advance money in stealth as the militants had purveying eyes and would demand their own pound of flesh. Durga Nath failed to smell the rat though the brutal killing of Pandits had already touched a new water-mark. He accompanied the would-be tenant and never returned alive. His dead body was found at Badshah Nagar near Natipora. His tongue was chopped off for having asked for money to be paid in advance. His whole skull was bored from a point in the neck. The copper coin that was placed in his mouth as a matter of ritual dropped from the same hole that was burrowed in his neck. What is astounding that the Muslim who had led him into to the death trap is reported to have occupied the same shop.
