Faizan, a twelve-year-old boy, was killed by the SOG(a counter-insurgency unit of local police) men back in the summer unrest of 2010 in Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
As per his family, Faizan was chased by SOG men when he was playing cricket in a local playground. After being hit on the head with a rifle’s buttstock, he was dumped into the river Jehlum. His dead body was recovered two days later. The accused were never punished or tried for their crime.
