Indian vehicle crushes another youth in Srinagar
SRINAGAR (92 News) In Indian-held Jammu Kashmir, another youth was crushed to death by a vehicle of Indian Police Force in Nowhatta area of Srinagar.
The incident triggered fresh protests against the government and security forces. Over fifty people were injured due to firing of pellets, bullets and teargas shells by Indian Police Force on protestors.
Pro Indian National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has strongly criticised Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s government over the incident. “Ceasefire means no guns so use jeeps,” he tweeted. He asked if this was the standard operating procedure of dealing with protesters?
On the other side, complete shutdown is being observed in the Indian-held Jammu Kashmir, today, against the surge in civilian killings by Indian troops.
Call for the shutdown has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.
