Deputy Superintendent Humayun Bhat, a courageous officer of Jammu & Kashmir Police, met his tragic end in a terrorist encounter in the Gadole forests of Kokernag, Anantnag. Just moments before his demise, Humayun Bhat made a heart-wrenching call to his family, yearning to catch a glimpse of his one-month-old baby.

In a video call to his wife, Fatima, he wore a demeanor of dwindling hope, having sustained several bullet injuries from Pakistan-backed terrorists affiliated with TRF, an offshoot of Lashkar-e-Taiba. This poignant moment occurred merely a fortnight before Humayun Bhat’s wedding anniversary, during which he confided in his wife that he might not survive his injuries.

“I may not survive. If I succumb to my injuries, please take care of our son,” he beseeched Fatima through the video call. A short while earlier, he had contacted his father, Retired IG Ghulam Hassan Bhat, reassuring him that he was “okay” despite his injuries.

DSP Humayun Bhat was among three officers at the forefront of the anti-terror operations.

On that fateful day, an Army Colonel and a Major also lost their lives in the gunfight with terrorists in Kokernag, Anantnag. The banned terror group, The Resistance Front, claimed responsibility for the attack.

DGP of J&K Police, Dilbag Singh, personally informed Humayun Bhat’s father about his son’s injury during the intense gunfight. He showed the father the efforts being made to rescue his son via video call. However, despite the swift response of a mountain rescue team and local villagers, the valiant DSP succumbed to his injuries due to profuse bleeding.

In a poignant ceremony, DSP Humayun Bhat was laid to rest in his hometown, Humhama in Budgam. The turnout of J&K residents was overwhelming, and anti-Pakistan sentiments echoed in the Valley.

Humayun Bhat’s father, embodying composure and restraint, paid his last respects to his son’s mortal remains, which were laid to rest at their residence in Budgam on Wednesday.
