In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), unknown gunmen killed a 19-year-old non-Kashmiri labourer in Bandipora district.
Unidentified gunmen shot at and injured the labourer, Mohammad Amrej, in Hajin area of the district. The victim was a resident of the Madhepura Besarh area of the Indian state of Bihar.
The labourer suffered critical injuries and soon after the incident was shifted to a nearby hospital where he was referred to JVC, Bemina in Srinagar. However, he succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.
Pertinently, the locals said that the area is fully covered by the Indian troops, paramilitary and police personnel and such suspicious killing of an Indian Muslim labourer may be a handy work of the Indian forces and secret agencies to create fear and defame the Kashmiris’ ongoing freedom struggle.—KMS
