BSF Jawan Anees's house burnt by rioters

25 Feb 2020 Delhi: The nameplate said house number 76 belonged to Mohd Anees of the BSF and also showed its insignia. But it was not enough to save them from the violence that was to be unleashed. The mob was going one by one vandalizing and burning down each house in Khas Khajuri Gali on the afternoon of February 25. First the cars that stood outside the house were set on fire. For the next several minutes, the mob pelted stones at the house. They shouted slogans of “idhar aa Pakistani, tujhe naagarikta dete hai (Come here Pakistani, we’ll give you citizenship)” as they then threw a gas cylinder in the house to set it on fire. That Anees had spent three years in Jammu and Kashmir guarding the border after joining the BSF in 2013 was lost on them. Along with Anees, his father Mohd Munis, 55, uncle Mohd Ahmed, 59, and 18-year-old cousin Neha Parveen were in the house. Sensing what was about to go down next, they all escaped from the house, and were helped by paramilitary troops. Neha Parveen was to get married in April and Anees himself was to get married the following month. “All the things we collected all our life, jewelry – two gold necklaces, silver jewelry, it is all gone,” the family said. “We used to buy jewelry on installments… used to give money every month and collected this jewelry,” they said. Rs 3 lakh in cash for the wedding arrangements also got burnt along with other valuables and all their belongings.
