New Delhi

SALARSenior advocate Salar Muhammad Khan died here on Saturday, 8 April. He was 52 years old. He is survived by wife, daughter and son. He basically belonged to Jaipur in Rajasthan but had made Delhi his home where he practiced law for the last three decades.

He was a dedicated defender of the human and civil rights, especially of minorities and Dalits.

His condition deteriorated while undergoing stent procedure and he succumbed to death. He was buried in Batla House graveyard same day in the presence of hundreds of relatives and friends including many journalists, lawyers and human rights activists.
