Srinagar, May 21, (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, pellet victims held a protest demonstration in Srinagar demanding ban on the use of pellet guns in the territory.

Scores of pellets victims under the banner of Pellet Victims Welfare Trust (PVWT) from various districts of the valley assembled at press club in Srinagar. They were holding placards with slogans like “Pellet Gun Lethal Weapon”, “Ban pellet gun”, “Stop use of pellet gun”, “Where is humanity where is UN” and “Where is human rights commission”.
