Ganderbal, Dec 15 (KNO): Life has fallen apart for three teenagers in Ganderbal who lost their mother a month ago, while the father is languishing in jail for the last two years.

In absence of parents and guardians, three minor girls are going through very tough times as there is no one to take care of them.

Longing for a paternal love, it is 14-year old Rohina, the eldest among the three who is looking after her two sisters – Muskaan 9 year old, and Zoya who is just 8 years old.

Living in a tin shed in Banjar Basti area of Gabderbal, the three minors have no source of income to feed themselves.

While their father was in jail, for a crime which his daughters believe he has not committed, the only support for them was their mother who working as a domestic servant. However, a month back after her death, the kids are left on God’s mercy.

Locals told news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) to free their father, “the family sold their house to pay the lawyer’s fee.”

“One can’t imagine how these minor girls are living without the parents particularly during these harsh winters,” they said. “Government should take a cognisance of their suffering and release their father on humanitarian grounds”—(KNO)
