Photo - Pushker Nath Koul Information

Description: Name: Pushker Nath Koul

Father's Name: Dina Nath Koul

Date of Birth: 10.6.1941

Date of Assassination: 22.4.1990

Residence: Bijbehara, Anantnag

Survived by wife (48), sons (30,25), daughter (16)

He was unemployed and lived on an income accruing from a small orchard that he owned. He was frank, fair and forthright in his manner. He zestfully cultivated and maintained good relations with the Muslim residents of his village. With the spread of terrorism he became suspect in the eyes of Muslims whom he advised to distance themselves from the outfits that had started operating in the village. Because of his cultivated contacts with them Pandits thought him safe and secure from the Muslim onslaught. But what they had thought about him got disproved when at exact 8 in the evening a Muslim killer knocked at his door. His wife warded him off by telling that he was out of home. Meanwhile he started having his meal. The same killer broke open all the doors and entered his room to tell him that he was wanted by the Station House Officer. Pushker Nath had taken only two morsels, gave up eating anymore and accompanied the heartless killer. He was whisked away and his daughter small in years informed the Kashmiri Pandit neighbours about the incident. They got panicked, did not sleep for the whole night and made some attempts to inform the Police but were stopped in their tracks by a N.C. activist who might have been aware of his ultimate fate. The younger son of Pushker Nath, fearless and agile, could have organised some efforts for his retrieval, but was away from home and was not immediately informed. Pushker Nath was meted out the same treatment that is prescribed for the kafirs through practices and precedents. He was severely tortured as his body bore burn marks. He was beaten with iron rods, skinned off and left to die. His body was lying under a tree at Thajvour and was recovered by Police fully aware of the incident but "no action" was the pass-word. He was allegedly killed by the same killer, Mana Darzi alias Manzoor-Ul-Islam who had killed Prem Nath Bhat and many others.
