Indian troops martyr one more Kashmiri youth

Srinagar, August 02 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, all major entry and exit points of Srinagar and other towns have been taken over by the army and India has decided to deploy 28,000 additional troops in the territory.

The deployment has created a sense of fear and insecurity at the extreme level amongst the masses. The additional troops are being sent to occupied Kashmir in less than a week after New Delhi moved 10,000 soldiers to the territory. India has also put the Army and Air Force on high alert in the territory. Indian Air Force fighter aircrafts have been patrolling over occupied Kashmir since Thursday evening. The occupation authorities have issued an order, asking the Amarnath Yatris to curtail their stay in occupied Kashmir and return as soon as possible.

The Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, addressing a Juma congregation at historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, today, said the situation developing on ground over the past week with the deployment of thousands of additional troops has created panic among the people.

Amina Malik, sister of illegally detained Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik, addressing a press conference in Srinagar, today, said that her incarcerated brother was being tortured and put on a slow death trail by the Indian government for being a political adversary, having a different political belief and ideology and pursuing that ideology in a peaceful manner. She said that Yasin Malik, who is suffering from various ailments, had continuously been kept in solitary confinement for the past four months in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail where he was not being provided with proper medical care. Amina Malik was flanked by her mother and another sister.

Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred one Kashmiri youth during a cordon and search operation in Pandoshan area of Shopian district, today. Earlier, one Indian soldier was killed and another was injured in an attack in the same area. People took to the streets and staged forceful demonstrations against the killing of the youth. Indian troops and police personnel fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters, injuring several of them. The occupation authorities have suspended mobile internet service in the district.

Indian police arrested a noted journalist, Qazi Shibli, in Islamabad town and lodged him in a local police station.

India’s Enforcement Directorate has attached assets worth Rs 17.3 millions of illegally detained Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Watali. Watali was arrested by Indian’s National Investigation Agency in August 2017 in a false case registered against him and is presently lodged in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
