Shutdown in Poonch enters second day over Rajouri killings

57

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, shutdown entered its second day in Poonch district, today, against the killing of six people in Rajouri while protests were held across the Jammu region.

Shops and business establishments remained closed in the Poonch district as hundreds of people, braving cold weather, came out to hold protests against the failure of the Modi regime in protecting innocent lives in the territory. The protestors burnt tyres and demanded enhancement of security.

In Kathua, protestors assembled on the highway at Kalibari and blocked it, thereby disrupting the movement of the traffic for an hour.

BJP leaders tried to hijack the protests, but they were warned by the locals to avoid politicizing the agitation. Even a BJP leader asked for a surgical strike across the Line of Control. KMS—16K

New Delhi under a sinister plan is going to deploy additional 18 companies of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the 18 CRPF companies – approximately 1,800 personnel – will be rushed to the Jammu region for deployment mainly in Poonch and Rajouri districts.

Eight CRPF companies will be brought from nearby locations for deployment in IIOJK while 10 CRPF companies are being rushed from New Delhi.—KMS
