“Around 11.45 p.m., the cops arrived but were unable to apprehend the arsonists. I learned that the arson was committed by the boys who were responsible for the killing of the soldier whose house was set on fire by the Army in retaliation.

“All of my belongings were burned in my house, so I left with only boxers.” When the cops arrived, I emerged from my hiding place to find that the building next to my house was also on fire.

“As I am now in the police station, I am requesting assistance from any good-spirited person to enable me to survive the shock,” he wrote.
