Indian troops martyr three more youths in Occupied Kashmir
SRINAGAR (KMS) – In Occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh acts of state terrorism martyred three more Kashmiri youths in Baramulla and Shopian districts on Saturday. The troops martyred two youths during a cordon and search operation at Malmapanpora in Sopore area of Baramulla district. Earlier, an Indian soldier was injured in an attack in the same area. The troops martyred one more youth, Manzoor Ahmed Butt, during an over 40-hour long cordon and search operation at Pandoshan in Shopian district. The troops had martyred another youth, Zeenatul Islam Naikoo, in the same area, on Friday. Several houses were razed to the ground by the Indian forces during the operation in Pandoshan. Thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of martyred Zeenatul Islam Naikoo at his native Memmander village in Shopian district. The participants of the funeral raised high-pitched anti-India and pro-freedom slogans on the occasion. Meanwhile, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement in Srinagar expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health of illegally detained Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail. It demanded immediate release of Yasin Malik and other Kashmiri detainees languishing in different jails. Scores of students from different departments of Kashmir University assembled outside the Humanities Block and held a forceful demonstration against the war hysteria created by India for last few days in the Kashmir Valley. The students pledged that any nefarious design by the Indian state which is against the interests of Kashmiri people will be opposed tooth and nail. Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement Chairman Mir Shahid Saleem, in a statement issued in Jammu, warned the Indian government that any move to tinker with the special status of Jammu and Kashmir will have disastrous consequences. On the other hand, fear gripped Chenab Valley and Pir Panchal areas of Jammu region after deployment of additional paramilitary personnel by India at many places in these areas. Reports said that the people were feeling insecure as they apprehended that something bad was going to happen. Indian police arrested Hurriyat leaders including Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza and Manzoor Ahmed Ghazi from Bijbehara and Islamabad town in South Kashmir and lodged them in local police stations. In London, the executive members of Organisation of Kashmir Coalition, Professor Nazir Ahmed Shawl and Barrister Abdul Majeed Tramboo, in a joint statement expressed anguish over the deployment of around 40,000 additional troops by India in occupied Kashmir. They said that the heaviest militarized zone of the world was further amplified by New Delhi to crush the Kashmiris’ legitimate uprising for their right to self-determination.
