JK cop murder case: Accused Yasir was in 'depression', wrote in diary 'Dear death waiting for you'
From 'I hate my life' and 'Dear death I am waiting for you' to Bollywood songs about sadness and the final farewell, the diary entries of Yasir Lohar reveal that he was 'under depression'
Jammu: Yasir Ahmed, who killed Jammu and Kashmir Director General (Prisons) Hemant K Lohia, was arrested following a major manhunt through the night. From his recent diary entries, it seems that the 23-year-old domestic help and school dropout was fed up with life, according to police.
From “I hate my life” and “Dear death I am waiting for you” to Bollywood songs about sadness and the final farewell, the diary entries of Yasir Ahmed reveal that he was “under depression”.
Besides this, Ahmed has also in Hindi and broken English in his diary one-line sentences like: “I want Restart My life”, “Zindagi to bas taklif deti hai, sukoon to maut hi deti hai (life only hurts, death brigs peace), and “everyday starts with expectation but ends with bad experience”.
Ahmed, a school dropout, has also scribbled in his diary a popular Bollywood song from movie Ashiqui 2 — “Bhula dena mujhe, hai alvida tujhe” — in which the lyrics talks about separation and goodbyes.
He wrote he was “99 percent sad” in his life but wore a “fake smile 100 percent”.
“I am 10 percent happy, having zero percent love in life and 90 percent tension in life. I hate my life which only gives pain and waiting for death to restart my life,” he wrote.
DG (Prisons) Lohia was found dead at his residence on the outskirts of Jammu on Monday night. His throat was slit and there were burn injuries on the body.
According to Additional Director General of Police, Mukesh Singh, Ahmed was working in this house for nearly six months.
“Initial investigations reveal he was quite aggressive in his behaviour and was also under depression,” he said.
The ADGP said a preliminary examination of the crime scene indicated that Lohia must have been applying some oil on his foot, which was swollen. The killer allegedly suffocated Lohia to death and used a broken ketchup bottle to slit his throat and later tried to set the body afire.
“The suspect had bolted the room from inside while he was rubbing balm on his foot. He repeatedly attacked him with a sharp object and even threw a burning pillow towards him in an apparent bid to set the body ablaze,” he said.
