Girija Tickoo was a librarian from India who died during the flight of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir valley in the 1990s. This article includes information about Girija Tickoo’s brief biography. If you’re prepared, let’s begin.
Girija Tickoo’s Biography
Girija Tickoo was born in Arigam, Bandipora, Jammu & Kashmir on Saturday, February 15, 1969 (he was 21 years old at the time of his death). She is an Aquarius by birth sign.
Her nickname, Babli, was given to her by her loved ones. Girdhari Lal Tickoo, a native of Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora area, was the woman she married. She had two kids at the time of her death, according to media reports (one son and one daughter).
Girija Tickoo’s Case
Girija Tickoo was a Bandipora-born Hindu from Kashmir. She was a Lab assistant at a university in Kashmir Valley. Tickoo had left with her family and settled in Jammu following the terrorist group’s “Azadi Movement,” which was led by Yasin Malik and comprised of militants from the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front.
One day she got a call from someone saying things were better in the valley and she should come back to get her pay. The guy claimed the region was safe to travel to and gave her reassurance of her safety.
Girija met her Muslim coworker in the valley in June 1990 when she arrived to pick up her salary. She had no idea that jihadi militants were following her whereabouts. Girija was abducted from her coworker’s house and brought somewhere unidentified. Everyone observed her being taken discreetly, even her coworkers and locals.
Her lifeless body, which had been missing for a few days, was discovered on the side of the road in terrible condition. She had been severely tormented and savagely gang-raped, the autopsy indicated. In the centre of Girija’s body, while she was still alive, a mechanical saw was used to divide her into two pieces.
Like the thousands of other Kashmiri Pandits whose pain has been dismissed by the ‘liberal’ wing of the media and society as ‘propaganda,’ her family is still waiting for justice.
The Kashmir Files, a movie by director Vivek Agnihotri about the massacre of Kashmiri Pandits that caused their departure from the valley in 1990, has been a big hit with moviegoers.
The movie has made the misery and reality of Kashmir’s Hindu population public. The savage rape and murder of Girija Tickoo, a Kashmiri Pandit, who was hacked in half with a mechanical saw while still alive, was one of the most disturbing events that took place at that time.
After more than three decades of silence on the tragedy, Girija’s family has now spoken up. Sidhi Raina, her niece, made an emotional post on Instagram in which she pleaded with everyone to see the film and talked about how her family is still waiting for justice.
She claimed that the movie depicts the terrifying nights that her family and every other Kashmiri Pandit family endured while recounting what happened to Girija.

She wrote, “My father’s sister, Girija Tickoo, was a university librarian who had gone to pick up her paycheck. On her way back, the bus she was riding in was halted, and what occurred next still fills me with shivers, sorrow, and nausea.”
My bua was then put into a taxi with five men, one of which was her coworker. They tormented and raped my bua before brutally killing her by sawing her in half with a carpenter’s saw.
Imagine being the brother who had to admit that his Babli wasn’t to blame for this horrifying conflict of utter hypocrisy.
