Farmers protest against CRPF


After getting their paddy fields inundated due to rise in water level, several farmers staged a protest against India’s paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), urging authorities in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) to remove the boundary wall created by CRPF personnel around their camp at Vailoo Kokarnag area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

Local sources said that after the massive rain-fall, water level went up in water canal for agricul-tural land at Vailoo, Kokarnag.

They said the passage of the water got blocked due to boundary wall of CRPF camp which changed the course and seeped into the paddy fields.

Farmers of the village hit to roads and staged a protest, seeking removal of concertina wire and boundary wall of the camp.—KMS
