According to media sources, the boats were placed in a queue from one end to another of the Jhelum river in Aghanzipora — ancestral village of martyr Irshad Ahmad — to help the people, especially women, to visit the family of the martyr.

“In the absence of a bridge, the villagers decided to make the bridge out of twenty-five boats,” said a villager. He said that hundreds of people, especially women, from several villages of Awantipora used the bridge on two Eid days to visit the family of Ahmad.

Irshad Ahmad along with two associates was killed by Indian troops in Kakapora area of Pulwama district.
