Srinagar, April 26 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities, refusing to hand over the dead bodies of the three Kashmiri youth martyred by the Indian troops in Awantipura area of Pulwama district, yesterday, to their families, buried them quietly in an army-run graveyard at a far-flung place in Sonamarg area of Gandarbal district.

Earlier, on 22 April also, four local youth, who were killed by the troops in Shopian district were buried in an Indian army-managed graveyard.

It is worth mentioning here that the Indian authorities in quite violation of the international laws, have started a new practice of burying the bodies of the martyred youth secretly at faraway places in unmarked graves in the territory. The decision in this regard has been taken in view of massive participation of the locals in the funerals of the martyrs. The move comes as the authorities believe that the funerals of the youth further incite anti-India sentiments, which might trigger another 2016-like uprising in Kashmir. »
