Shutdown on sham Indian polls tomorrow
Srinagar, April 17 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has appealed to the people to boycott the second phase of parliamentary election drama scheduled to be held in Srinagar and Udhampur, tomorrow.

The APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar said that a military exercise in the name of election was being thrust upon the people of Jammu and Kashmir. The Joint Resistance Leadership, in the meanwhile, has asked people to observe complete shutdown in the poll-bound areas of Srinagar, Badgam and Gandarbal, tomorrow, to protest against the holding of sham elections.

Indian troops started frisking of people in different areas of Srinagar and adjoining areas a day ahead of the second phase of the Indian parliamentary elections. Checkpoints have been particularly installed in several areas of Srinagar where people and their vehicles are thoroughly searched and frisked. Indian troops launched a cordon and search operation in Tral area of Pulwama district, today.

New Delhi-based infamous National Investigation Agency has, once again, issued summons to Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement Chairman, Zafar Akbar Butt, for questioning. He has been asked to appear before the NIA headquarters on Friday.

India’s Enforcement Directorate has attached assets worth millions of rupees of illegally detained Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Ahmed Watali in occupied Kashmir. New Delhi uses NIA and Enforcement Directorate to intimidate Kashmiri leadership.

Indian police arrested Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement Chairman, Maulvi Bashir Ahmad during a raid on his house in Srinagar.

On the other hand, a study conducted by the Department of Psychiatry of Government Medical College, Srinagar, has revealed that 85 % of the pellet victims were diagnosed with multiple psychiatric disorders. The study found that 93 % of the patients with eye injuries were diagnosed with, at least, one psychiatric disorder. It is worth mentioning here that pellet guns were introduced by the Indian authorities in occupied Kashmir in 2010 to quell anti-India protests.

The APHC-AJK chapter at a meeting in Islamabad said that the drama being enacted in the name of Indian parliamentary elections in occupied Kashmir was illegal, immoral and in contravention to the resolutions of the United Nations.
