Indian troops in their fresh acts of state terrorism martyred, today, five more Kashmiri youth in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
During cordon and search operations, the troops martyred three youth in Drach and one in Moolu areas of Shopian district. The troops continued their operations at both the places till last reports came in.
The troops shot at and injured a civilian, Asif Ahmad, at a check-point in Haal area of Pulwama district. Later, the victim succumbed to his injuries at SMHS hospital in Srinagar.
The killing of innocent youth by the troops belies the claims made by the Indian Home Minister, Amit Shah, at a rally in Rajouri district of Jammu region, yesterday, that after the repeal of Article 370, IIOJK has emerged as the most secure place.
Since repeal of Article 370, killings, arrests, torture, destruction of properties and other brutalities by Indian troops have become the order of the day. The troops have intensified their cordon and search operations across IIOJK, making the life of the people a hell.—KMS
