Srinagar, December 01 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their unabated acts of state terrorism martyred seven Kashmiris during the last month of November.

According to the data issued by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, during the month, eighty two people were critically injured in the firing by Indian troops on peaceful demonstrators in the occupied territory. Sixty-five civilians, mostly youth and political activists were arrested. The troops damaged three houses during cordon and search operations.
