Srinagar, July 31 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh acts of state terrorism martyred three Kashmiris in Pulwama and Bandipora districts, today.
The troops martyred two youth during a cordon and search operation in Nagberan-Tarsar area of Pulwama district. The operation continued till last reports came in. The troops martyred a 50-year-old civilian identified as Muhammad Abdullah at an army camp in Tarbal area of Bandipore district during custody. The death of the man sparked protest in Bagroor area prompting the occupation authorities to snap the mobile service.
Senior Hurriyat leader, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, in a statement issued in Srinagar expressed serious concern over the surge in the cordon and search operations by Indian troops in the territory. He along with a delegation also visited Warpura, Dangarpura and Brathkalan areas of Sopore and expressed solidarity with the families of the youth recently martyred by Indian troops.
The Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement in a statement demanded immediate and unconditional release of all illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists languishing in different jails of IIOJK and India.
India’s notorious National Investigating Agency raided 14 locations in the occupied territory, today, in connection with two separate cases of the recovery of Improvised Explosive Devices. The raids were carried out by the NIA sleuths in different areas including Shopian, Islamabad, Banihal and Jammu.
Meanwhile, posters pasted in different areas of the occupied territory have termed the 05 August 2019 as a Black Day in the history of Jammu and Kashmir. On August 05, 2019, Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government repealed the special status of IIOJK and placed the territory under strict military siege. The Chairman of Islami Tanzeem-e-Azadi, Abdul Samad Inqilabi, in a statement issued in Srinagar said the Kashmiris have not accepted the illegal and unilateral Indian moves of August 5, 2019 and they will continue their freedom struggle till complete success.
Heavy rains in Ganderbal and its adjoining areas caused breach in a canal at Baba Wayil Padshahibagh, triggering flash floods. Eyewitnesses said that water entered several houses, agricultural fields and Indian military camps.
On the other hand, sixteen European parliamentarians have written a letter to the high officials of European Commission, urging the European Union to raise its voice on the prevailing humanitarian situation in IIOJK. In the letter addressed to the European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, and Vice President, Josep Borrell, the MEPs called upon them to convey on the EU’s behalf the grave concern over the violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms in IIOJK to the Indian government, besides taking urgent action to address the alarming human rights situation in the region.
Kashmir Media Service in a report has described the letter as a big development that shows that the lawmakers and the parliamentarians of the world are taking cognizance of mayhem unleashed by India in IIOJK. The report expressed confidence that the European Commission will take the letter seriously and will impress upon India to stop death and destruction in the territory.
The Chairman of Kashmir Council Europe, Ali Raza Syed, in a statement in Brussels hailed the European Parliamentarians for raising concern over the severe situation of human rights in IIOJK. KMS
