Disappearance of youth in Indian army’s custody triggers protest in Kupwara


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, another innocent Kashmiri youth has gone missing in the custody of Indian army, which prompted the family members and relatives to stage a protest demonstration in Kunun Poshpora area of Kupwara, seeking the whereabouts of the youth.

The youth named Abdul Rasheed was arrested by Indian army during a house raid in December 2022 and went missing in the Indian army’s custody. It is believed that the army has killed him in custody, and is waiting for a fake encounter drama to show his death in a “crossfire”.

The people staged sit-in protest in front of DC Kupwara office and demanded the whereabouts of the missing youth.

The protesters shouted slogans like “Gunda Gardi nahee chaleegee”, “Thanashahee nahee chaleegi” and “We Want Justice”.—KMS
