APHC says Indian troops are forcing people to stay outdoors in freezing cold


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has condemned the Indian troops for forcing Kashmiri people to stay in the open even in subzero temperatures dur-ing cordon and search operations in the territory.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said the troops also pass humiliating and obscene remarks besides subjecting the people to indecent frisking during the operations.

He strongly condemned the arbitrary arrests of the youth on flimsy grounds, and said that the occu-pation troops and police personnel are inflicting untold atrocities on the detained youth during the interrogation.

He deplored that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are living a hellish life under the ille-gal occupation of more than one million Indian troops, deployed in every nook and corner of the territory.

The spokesman denounced the killer forces who he said enjoy killing innocent and unarmed civil-ians, crack laughter and cut jokes as if they are on a hunting expedition in the occupied territory.

The spokesman urged the United Nations Secre-tary General, Antonio Guterres to fulfill his moral and legal obligation to resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions.—KMS
