Protest held in Srinagar over Gawkadal Massacre
SRINAGAR (92 News) – A protest demonstration was held in Srinagar on Thursday (today), to mark the 26th anniversary of Gawkadal massacre in the territory.
The protest was organized on the eve of Gawkadal massacre, which was perpetrated by Indian troops on 21st January in 1990. The protesters criticized the criminal silence of human rights organizations against the killers of innocent Kashmiris.
Hurriyet leaders while paying rich tributes to the victims of Gawkadal massacre on their 26th anniversary, said that the massacre was a handiwork of the then notorious Governor Jagmohan Malhotra.
