Srinagar, September 22 : In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred a youth in Badgam district.
The youth was killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation, jointly launched by Indian Army, Central Reserve Police Force and police in Charar-e-Sharief area of the district. A house was also destroyed by the troops. The killing triggered anti-India protests in the area. Earlier, an Indian soldier was critically injured in an attack in the same area.
Meanwhile, an analytical report today, said that extrajudicial killing of Kashmiri youth has become a regular feature of Indian troops. It said the killing of three labourers in Shopian fake encounter on July 18 has brought back painful memories of the past. The report cited a few examples including those of 2000 Pathribal and 2010 Machil massacres and proved that Indian troops were habitual of killing the Kashmiris in fake encounters.
A protest demonstration was held by Muslims, Sikhs and Dalits in Jammu against the abrogation of special status of Jammu and Kashmir, imposition of Hindi language and agenda of hatred promoted by Modi-led fascist Indian government in the territory. The protest was attended by all prominent leaders of the three communities including Narinder Singh Khalsa.
Kashmir Editors Guild in a statement expressed anguish over the brutal manhandling of a local journalist Aaqib Javed by Indian police. Aaqib was summoned over a story published by an online news portal, slapped and abused by the police in Srinagar.
Hundreds of people took out an anti-India rally in Muzaffarabad, today. The participants of the rally, organized by Tehreek-e-Istiqlal, raised slogans against Indian brutalities in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
