In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops have intensified checking and frisking in Srinagar city and other parts of the territory in the name of so-called security measures ahead of India’s Republic Day, the 26th January.

Indian troops and police personnel have been deployed in strength to keep a watch on the movement of people. The forces’ personnel have set up check points on every road and chowk where commuters and pedestrians are being frisked and vehicles are checked thoroughly.

A close vigil is being maintained on all vehicles and pedestrians entering the city. Police personnel can be seen carrying out surprise checking of the vehicles on the entry and exit points in Srinagar. The cops are also frisking motorcyclists and passengers of vehicles in the city.

Similarly, checkpoints have also been set up in other towns and on the main roads and highways where Indian soldiers are harassing and intimidating the people.—KMS
