Pakistan calls for independent inquiry into extra-judicial killing of three Kashmiris in IIOJ&K

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Pakistan has reiterated its call for independent inquiry under international scrutiny into the extra-judicial killing of three innocent Kashmiri labourers in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).

The three Kashmiri labourers were martyred by the Indian occupation forces in staged encounter in July this year in Shopian where they had come to work in an apple orchard.

In a statement, Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said the revelations that weapons were planted on the bodies of the Kashmiri laborers martyred in Kashmir to make it look as though they were armed fighters in a staged gun battle are only a tip of the ice-berg of Indian crimes against the Kashmiri people.

He said more than 300 innocent Kashmiris including women and children have been martyred in fake 'encounters' and staged 'cordon and search' operations during the last one year.

The FO spokesperson called upon the international community to hold India accountable for its crimes against the Kashmiri people and work for resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people.
