From Indian army with love! Spreading the message of love, Indian army reached out to the aged ailing parents of active Lashkar-e-Tioba commander Riyaz Ahmad Dar and assured them of medical help in the Pulwama district of troubled south Kashmir.
Riyaz, an active LeT militant from Sethargund village, picked up arms in 2015 and has since become one of the wanted ultras in the south Kashmir region.
“Riyaz is the only son of his parents, who are already in their late sixties. Father of Riyaz is partially paralysed and under medication for the last one year. Facing constant hardships, the couple even had to shift to their relatives’ house four months ago”, said an army spokesman.
With Eid-ul-Azha (Bakr Eid) round the corner, soldiers from Kakapore based Army Camp interacted with the couple and brought some shine on their dull faces.
“During the interactions, their problems were discussed and medical aids were ensured for his father. The relatives who are taking care of the lone couple were also thankful for the efforts made by the Army,” said the spokesman.
The family, the spokesman said, was assured that Army will continue to stand by them in all circumstances. What has sent the positive vibes across was the army’s assurance that they would fully assist and cooperate in case Riyaz shuns path of violence and joins mainstream.
“The Army also assured full assistance to the family in case he wishes to return and wants to join the main stream. The family members appreciated the efforts and conveyed heartfelt gratitude,” said the spokesman.
