Assault on legislator
Tarigami asks Speaker to initiate proceedings against erring cops
SRINAGAR, Dec 5:: While condemning the alleged police assault on incumbent legislator Engineer Rashid in South Kashmir, senior CPI(M) leader Mohammed Yousuf Tarigami Monday urged the Speaker Legislative Assembly Kavinder Gupta to take strong note of the incident and initiate proceedings against the erring policemen for such a shameful act. “Not speaking of common men, a legislator has become the victim of the police brutality.

Visually impaired Khan is now Assistant Professor
SRINAGAR, Dec 2: Tariq Bashir Khan isn’t an average teaching expert. Far from it, since Khan was born with congenital visual impairment. However, that didn't stop the 39-year-old from learning to make strenuous efforts against all odds in his life. At the age of six, Khan, son of Bashir Ahmad Khan, a headmaster got admission in government middle school Andoora Shangus in district Anantnag over 70 kilometres from Srinagar. “Those were the days of disappointment for me and my parents were worried about my ‘dark’ future,” recalls Khan.
