KEG remembers Maqbool Sahil..

Kashmir Editors Guild (KEG) on Wednesday held a condolence meeting and paid homage to renowned writer, photojournalist, poet and author Maqbool Sahil, who passed away on Tuesday due to a massive heart attack.
While praying for the eternal peace of the departed soul, the meeting decided that as a token of respect to late Sahil’s contribution to the field of media, the KEG will be giving Rs 2 lakh to the bereaved family.
Sahil was laid to rest at his ancestral village, Adhal Dull, Kokernag, on Wednesday morning. A large number of people from various walks of life participated in the funeral prayers.
Born in 1968 at Adhal village, Sahil belonged to a clan of Khokhar Rajputs. His father Mohammad Jamal-ud-Din Khokhar had nicknamed him Sahil, which he later used as his pen name.
