Jammu, January 05 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Indian police registered a case against 10 youth under black law, Unlawful Activities [Prevention] Act, at Dachan police station in Kishtwar district and arrested two of them during raids on their houses.

The police booked the youth on the fake charge of being Over Ground Workers (OGWs) of a mujahid commander, Mohammad Amin alias Jehangir Saroori, who, according to the police, has been active in Kishtwar district for the past three decades.
