APHC concerned over surge in custodial killing of youth


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference General Secre-tary, Molvi Bashir Ahmed Irfani, has expressed serious concern over the custodial killing of inno-cent Kashmiri youth by Indian troops in fake en-counters in the territory.

Molvi Bashir Ahmed Irfani addressing a condo-lence meeting in South Kashmir’s Islamabad town said the recent hike in youths’ killing in custody during fake encounters leaves no doubt to believe that the Indian forces, instead of filling the jails, have preferred to fill the graveyards, which is a heinous war crime declared by the United Nations Charter of Human Rights.

He reiterated the Kash-miris’ commitment to take the ongoing resistance movement to its logical conclusion despite the worst Indian state terrorism.

The APHC leader urged the UN to initiate measures to stop the genocide of the Kashmiris at the hands of Indian troops.

The Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement Chairman, Khawaja Firdous, in a state-ment in Srinagar expressed concern over the plight of illegally detained Kashmiris languishing in dif-ferent jails.

The Jammu Kashmir Democratic Free-dom Party in a statement said that targeted killing of Kashmiri youth was part of India’s nefarious de-signs to change demography of the territory.
