When Feroz Ahmad Dar, a 35-year-old sub-inspector in J&K Police, was laid to rest at his family’s ancestral graveyard at Dogripora in south Kashmir Friday night, the lines he had posted on his Facebook wall four years ago returned to haunt his friends and relatives.
“What is going to happen to me the first night in my grave? Just imagine…yourself in your grave down in that dark hole…alone. Think about the day people will be carrying you to your grave and your families crying…think about the moment,’’ the officer wrote.
On Friday morning, Dar, who was posted four months ago as Station House Officer in Achabal, was killed along with five policemen when militants ambushed their vehicle at Thajiwara village.
Late in the evening, his body was brought to his village. “He joined the police in 2010 as a sub-inspector and served at different places. He was a good officer, a dedicated son and a caring parent,’’
