In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred four Kashmiri youth in Islamabad district, today.
The youth were killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation in Watrigam area of the district. The troops sealed all entry and exit points in Watrigam, Achabal and Islamabad areas, and launched massive door-to-door search operations. The martyred youth were identified as Tariq, Muzaffar, Umar and Sajjad. The troops also destroyed a house, which belonged to one Fayaz Ahmad Dar.
A TADA court in Jammu has framed charges against Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, and other freedom leaders in a fake case registered against them around 30 years ago. TADA Court judge, Subash C Gupta, framed the charges against Muhammad Yasin Malik, Ali Mohammad Mir, Manzoor Sofi, Javed Mir, Saleem, Javed Zargar and Shoukat Bakhshi without providing them with proper opportunity to defend themselves. The case pertains to the killing of four Indian Air Force men in an attack in Srinagar on January 25, 1990.
Meanwhile, the Kashmiris have said that lockdown might be new to the world, but people of the territory are familiar with such a phenomenon for being under a state of constant military siege for the past seven months.—KMS
