Dozens protesters injured
In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops, in their fresh acts of state terrorism, martyred three youth and injured over thirty people in Litter area of Pulwama district.
The troops killed two youth, Waseem Shah and Naseer Ahmed, during a siege and search operation. The killings led to massive demonstrations in the area. Indian police and troops fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters, injuring dozens of them. One of the critically injured Gulzar Ahmed Mir was rushed to a hospital in Srinagar but succumbed to his injuries on the way.
Thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of Wasim Shah and Nasir Ahmed at their ancestral villages in south Kashmir. Witnesses said that the funeral prayers of Wasim Shah were offered at least five times in Heff village to accommodate the big number of people. Similar scenes were witnessed at the funeral of Nasir Ahmad in Litter village of Pulwama. Four rounds of funeral prayers were held for him to accommodate the thousands of mourners.—KMS
