The family of Aamir Lone say that he was going to participate in the funeral of Gowhar Ahmed Rather when killed in police action.

"Aamir was not part of any protest. He was on way to participate in the funeral prayers of Gowhar at Kangan when forces fired upon him while chasing away some youth who had gathered to protest " Showket Ahmed, cousin of the Lone told Greater Kashmir. 

"Aamir died in my  arms,” says Showket, adding that his parents are in shock and unable to reconcile with the loss of their younger son.

"I was attending him at the hospital and at about 5:10 am on Sunday Aamir breathed his last" he said.

Aamir was a BSc final year student at government degree college Ganderbal and the youngest son of his parents.

The family has sought justice and action against those who fired upon him.
