A Kashmiri Pandit trader, Roshan Lal Mawa who had survived during a terrorist attack in his Zaina Kadal shop returned to the valley after around 29 years.
He opened his shop in Gaad Koche market where his return was celebrated by a swathe of locals who honored him by a lot of love and did ‘dastarbandi’ (turban-tying).
Roshan Lal Mawa, 74 had moved to Jammu after migration but later shifted to Delhi to start his business there. Although he used to visit valley in summers yet he never thought of returning completely. He had spent almost three decades in Delhi where he started a spices shop at Khari Baoli and named it Nandlal Maharaj Krishan.
