Chaman Lal Koul was a bright person with a degree in Commerce. He served as an Accounts Officer in the Department of Industries and was known for his competence. In the wake of Muslim insurgency his entire family including his old father had fled to Jammu. But Chaman Lal stayed back and continued attending his duties. On the fateful day he cooked his food, laid it on the table, switched on the idiot-box and was about to settle himself for lunch when a Muslim fairly known to him called him out for a word. Gripped by fear and panic Chaman Lal called his neighbour, Som Nath, a young man of 32 years who had stayed back to serve his invalid mother. Chaman Lal and Som Nath together accompanied the caller who was known even to the latter.

Both of them were whisked away and nothing was known about them for full four days. Som Nath's ailing and invalid mother wailed and screamed in agony but that would not melt the hearts of the Muslim killers. Chaman Lal and Som Nath were hacked into pieces and were stuffed into two gunny bags which were found lying on the Alijan Road. The police took the hacked bodies to the cremation ground for last rites. The ashes of Som Nath were handed over to his old invalid mother who was shifted to Jammu under security cover. The ashes of Chaman Lal were handed over to his old father at Jammu.
