This has been noticed that from past one year, 1972 Padam Shri awardee Late Smt Mali Tantray D/o Hatta Tantray is being falsely mentioned by officials and social media outlets as a Gujjar community lady, which is either erroneous or fabricated. Factually, she belonged to the Tantray, a Pahari community. I personally being relative of Smt Mali Tantray, she was my mother’s sister. I confirm that she was from Tantray community and all the decorations of awardee including Medal, Ribbon and the certificate are preserved in possession of her family. She was born, lived and died at Mohalla Nakka Tantray, Ward No. 03, Pyt. Arai Peeran Block Mandi Distt. Poonch, J&K. The proud family of the late awardee is disappointed with this false narrative.
