India martyrs two more youth in IOK

Monday – April 27, 2020
SRINAGAR (India): In Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK), Indian troops in their fresh act of State terrorism martyred two Kashmiri youth in Kulgam district, Sunday, taking the number of slain youth to 11 since Wednesday.

According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS), the troops martyred the two youth during a cordon and search operation (CASO) at Asthal in Kulgam district Sunday evening.

The operation continued till last reports came in.

Earlier, Indian troops had martyred three Kashmiri youth in Pulwama district, on Saturday, and two in Arwani area of Islamabad district, on Friday. The troops had martyred four youth during a similar operation in Melhora area of Shopian district on Wednesday.

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, on Saturday, to their families, buried them quietly in an army-run graveyard at a far-flung place in Sonamarg area of Gandarbal district.

Earlier, on April 22, 2020, also, four local youth, who were killed by the Indian troops in Shopian district were buried in an Indian army-managed graveyard.

It is worth mentioning here that the Indian authorities in sheer 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 occupied 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 IOK.

Police sources in occupied Kashmir have confirmed that on an average a Kashmiri youth has been martyred every day in the first three weeks of current month of April.

The sources said that 23 youth were martyred during the month in the occupied territory, so far.

Indian police arrested a person in Ganderbal on the charge of misusing social media. Indian troops launched a CASO n in Udhampur area of Jammu region.

Islamic political party (IPP) general secretary Altaf Ahmad in a statement issued in Srinagar condemned the oppressive tactics being applied by India in occupied Kashmir.

He paid tributes to the Kashmiri martyrs and said that their sacrifices will not go waste.

The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) in a statement paid glowing tributes to JKLF founder leader, Amanullah Khan, on his death anniversary.

Meanwhile, a complaint against rashtriya swayamsevak sangh (RSS) backed communal Indian TV anchor, Arnab Goswami, was registered at police station, Handwara, for inciting Hindus in India against the Muslim community.

The first information report (FIR) has been registered by Jammu and Kashmir Zamindar Forum (JKZF) president, Abdul Hameed Malik. In his complaint, he said that the TV anchor’s agenda was to divide Hindus and Muslims.
