DFP denounces killing of four innocent youth by Indian troops



In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Democratic Freedom Party, a constituent of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), has strongly condemned the killing of four Kashmiris by Indian troops in Jammu district.

The troops martyred four Kashmiri youth in a fake encounter in the garb of a cordon and search operation after arresting them when they were travelling in a vehicle in Sidhra area of the district.

The DFP spokesman, advocate Arshad Iqbal, in a statement issued in Srinagar, while terming the martyrdom of four Kashmiri youth as the worst kind of Indian state terrorism, said that the incident was yet another addition to the unending chronicles of fake encounters that has become a new normal in the territory.

He said the racist regime, which derives pleasure by inflicting pain and penalizing Kashmiris, has intensified its state terrorism in the occupied territory where innocent people, especially the youth, are being killed by the trigger-happy forces’ personnel operating under the shield of a host of draconian laws that provide them impunity.

The spokesman urged the world community, particularly the human rights bodies, to play a role to help stop the continued bloodshed of Kashmiris in the occupied territory and hold India accountable for the war crimes being committed by its forces against the Kashmiris.—KMS
