Islamabad, September 19 (KMS): Pakistan has called for a transparent judicial inquiry under international scrutiny into the extrajudicial killing of three innocent Kashmiris two months ago in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Foreign Office Spokesperson, Zahid Hafeez in a statement in Islamabad said that the Indian forces had martyred twenty five years old Imtiyaz Ahmed, twenty years old Mohammad Ibrar and sixteen years old Abrar Ahmed during a cordon and search operation in Shopian on 18th July this year.

The spokesperson said that the Indian Army itself had admitted two months after the killing that the three innocent Kashmir labourers were killed extra-judicially. It is an acknowledgement that the Indian forces were guilty of war crimes in the occupied territory.

He said the international community must take immediate cognizance of the 18th July incident as well as other acts indicative of the RSS-BJP regime’s genocidal tendencies and hold it accountable for continuing crimes against the Kashmiri people.

The spokesperson said India has taken its brutalization of innocent Kashmiris to a new level since its illegal and unilateral actions of 5th August last year. More than, three hundred, mostly young Kashmiris, have been extra-judicially killed by the Indian forces in fake encounters and staged cordon and search operations in the territory during the past one year.

Zahid Hafeez said that Pakistan had consistently been sensitizing the world community including the UN and the international human rights organizations about India’s serious crimes against the Kashmiri people.

The spokesperson said that the BJP leadership must realize that it was directly responsible for crimes against the Kashmiri people. No illegal and inhuman acts such as Armed Forces Special Powers Act and Public Safety Act can provide immunity against the crimes that are being perpetrated in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he added.

The spokesperson said that India should be well aware that the use of brutal force could not break the will of Kashmiri people in their just struggle for inalienable birthright to self-determination.
