Chemist Found Dead with Throat Slit in JK

A 35-year-old chemist, Amarjit Sharma, was found dead with his throat slit near his residence in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district, officials reported on Monday. The gruesome murder has sparked outrage among his relatives and neighbors, who have demanded the immediate arrest of the unidentified perpetrators.

Sharma’s lifeless body was discovered outside his house in Mela village late Sunday night. His family began searching for him when he failed to return home, ultimately finding him in a distressing state, according to the officials.

In response to the murder, hundreds of grief-stricken people, including Sharma’s relatives and neighbors, took to the streets to protest. They carried Sharma’s body and blocked the Jammu-Pathankot highway and a nearby railway track in the Hiranagar area around 9 a.m. on Monday morning, causing significant disruption.

The protests continued for approximately two hours, during which time the demonstrators expressed their frustration and demanded swift justice for Sharma. The situation was tense as the community mourned the loss of a well-known and presumably well-liked individual in their locality.

The demonstrators eventually dispersed after police and civil officers intervened. The officials assured the protesters that a case had been registered and a thorough investigation was underway to apprehend the culprits responsible for Sharma’s murder.

The authorities’ promise of action seemed to pacify the crowd, although the community remains on edge as they await tangible results from the investigation. The police have pledged to leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of justice for Sharma and his grieving family.

Sharma’s tragic death has left the village of Mela and the surrounding areas in a state of shock. The incident has underscored the need for heightened security and swift justice to prevent such tragedies in the future.

As the investigation progresses, the local community and Sharma’s family hope for a quick resolution and the apprehension of those responsible for this heinous crime. The case continues to be a focal point of local concern and has garnered significant attention in the region.
