Wednesday – December 9, 2020
SRINAGAR (India): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), amid rains and harsh winter conditions, Indian troops launched a cordon and search operation (CASO) in Sopore area of Baramulla district, Tuesday.

According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS), the troops sealed Goripora area of Sopore and conducted house to house searches, causing huge inconvenience to the locals. The troops sealed all entry and exit points of the area.

Separately, three families of Kashmiri youth, who were detained by Indian police the other day, said that their sons are innocent and police are implicating them in fake cases.

The families of youth from Budgam have categorically rejected the claims of Indian special cell of Delhi police that they were involved in any objectionable activities and said that the youth were quite innocent.

Shaista, wife of a detainee Shabbir Ahmed, said that her husband visits the shrine of Ajmer annually and this time another youth from the same village accompanied him.

“My husband is a driver by profession with a clean police record. We were shocked over the claim made by Delhi police,” she told media adding that Shabir is sole breadwinner of the family.

The father of another detainee said that his son is innocent as he had gone to Delhi for the first time in his life. “My son is unmarried who had gone to Delhi to purchase some welding stuff,” he said and sought intervention of rights’ bodies for his release.

“My son has never ever been arrested for anything wrong,” the father said.

The family members of the three Budgam youth, arrested by Indian police in Delhi, staged a protest in Srinagar, demanding their release. They said, the detained youth are innocent.
