"Guru's family being deprived of his body was against  the tenets of natural justice and undermined the constitutional principles of the country," NC Chief Spokesperson Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi said here.
    
"The system cannot differentiate based on biased presumptions and politics and that such glaring double standards between Memon's and Guru's cases highlighted the perception of discrimination among the people of Kashmir,” he said.
      
Mehdi said the system of justice cannot have different  interpretations for different people.
      
"How can you justify not handing over the body of   Guru to his family when you handed over the body of Memon to  his family? The system of justice cannot have different  interpretations for different people.
    
"What justice is it to deprive a young child of the dead body of his father?," he asked.
   
"NC working president (and former chief minister) Omar  Abdullah had written to the then Prime Minister of India  demanding the return of Guru's mortal remains and the party  has repeatedly raised this demand even on the floor of the  Legislative Assembly," he said.
     
The NC chief spokesperson said the party would  continue to raise the demand and would exhaust all possible  options to pursue this cause of justice.
