Srinagar, June 16 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, two civilians have been killed and several others injured due to the use of brute force by Indian troops on protesters across the territory since last evening.

The troops fired pellets, bullets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters, killing one civilian, Muhammad Ashraf, and injuring several others. Bodies of two youth were recovered from the debris of the two houses blasted by the troops in the area. A civilian, Naseer Ahmed, who was critically injured in the firing of Indian paramilitary personnel on protesters in Rangreth area of Srinagar, last evening, succumbed to his injuries at a hospital late last night. Thousands of people attended the funeral prayers of Naseer Ahmed at his native Ashtengoo village in Bandipora. The joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has called for complete shutdown in the occupied territory, tomorrow, against the killings.
