''We want the body of my father... I want to see his face,'' Afzal Guru's 14 year old son Ghalib told The Indian Express. ''We want to bury him here.''
Ghalib lives with his paternal grandfather Ghulam Mohammad Buhroo. The family says that they are unable to leave their home in Bramulla because of strict curfew restrictions.
''We had called the local police station, requesting them to let us go to Guru's ancestral home Doabgah. The police declined,'' Buhroo said.
Buhroo said that Home minister Sushilkumar Shinde is lying when he says that the government had informed the family.

Buhroo said that now that the government has hanged him (Afzal), it is our right to perform his funeral in accordance with our religion.
''How can they bury him inside Tihar jail? He has a family. He has a son, wife and brother. They must hand over the body to us as soon as possible,'' Buhroo said. ``The government must not do another injustice with us by burying
