Shutdown in Gandarbal against killing

Srinagar, April 08 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that India is harassing and intimidating his family to pressurizing him but these cowardly acts will yield nothing for New Delhi.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar condemned the summoning of his second son, Dr Naeem Gilani by India’s National Investigating Agency. He said that earlier his younger son, Dr Naseem Gilani, was summoned by both NIA and Enforcement Directorate and now his elder son Dr Naeem had been called by NIA to Delhi in the name of questioning. He made it clear that India would not be able to break his resolve through such tactics as he had willfully adopted the torturous and thorny path of pursuing the movement for fundamental rights of his people.

Meanwhile, complete shutdown was observed in Kangan and Ganderbal towns for the second consecutive day, today, to mourn the killing of an M Tech student, Rahil Rashid Sheikh, by Indian troops. All shops and business establishments were closed while public transport was off the roads in several areas of Gandarbal district.

The Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq arrived in New Delhi to appear before the infamous India’s National Investigation Agency in connection with a fake case registered against him. He is accompanied by a delegation of his forum.

Indian forces in their ongoing crackdown operation arrested five youth in Ratnipora area of Pulwama district.

Indian police said that unknown men lobbed a grenade on a Central Reserve Police Force bunker in Srinagar, today. However, no loss of life and property was reported.

The widely read local English newspaper, Greater Kashmir, has received several calls from Hindutva forces threatening to shoot down the entire staff of the newspaper both in Jammu and Srinagar.

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in its election manifesto released in New Delhi today said that the party was committed to abrogate the Articles 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution, which grant special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

On the other hand, the APHC-AJK chapter, at a meeting presided over by its Convener Syed Abdullah Gilani in Islamabad, expressed concern over the situation in occupied Kashmir, saying that Indian forces were committing genocide of innocent Kashmiri people.
