In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh acts of state terrorism martyred two more Kashmiri youth on Sunday raising the toll to three in the last two days.
The youth were martyred by the troops during a cordon and search operation in Beshembar Nagar area of Srinagar district today.
Meanwhile, Indian police arrested two youth in Beerwah area of Badgam district. Police claimed that the detained youth were over ground workers of mujahid organizations. However, their families have categorically rejected the police’s version and said that the youth have no connection with any organization.
Srinagar-based Counter Intelligence also carried out raids at multiple locations of Kashmiris in New Delhi. The raids were conducted in connection with fake cases registered against them in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
APHC leaders in their statements, deplored that India is using state terrorism as an official policy to punish the Kashmiris. They said fake encounters, killings, abductions and torture are a routine in the occupied territory since Narendra Modi came to power in India.
On the other hand, victims of Lal Chowk massacre await justice despite a lapse of 29 years since the gruesome tragedy. It was on this day in 1993, a large section of downtown Srinagar known as Lal Chowk was burnt to the ashes by Indian paramilitary troops. As many as 47 innocent civilians out of 125 total victims were burnt alive by Indian Border Security Force. More than 60 houses and 150 shops, shrines and schools were razed.
