Srinagar, November 25 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, eyewitnesses as well as locals said the three martyred youth were dragged out of a car by vehicle-borne Indian forces in Rambag area of Srinagar city and were killed on road.
Within minutes after the killing of three youth in the fake encounter, in many videos captured at the site that have gone viral on social media, people are seen saying that the three boys were “pushed out of a Santro car and shot dead on the road”.
In one of the videos, eyewitnesses said that the three were “unarmed”. Soon after the incident, locals gathered near the spot and staged a protest and raised anti-India slogans.
However, the eyewitnesses as well as locals said there was no gunfight or encounter.
“At about 5PM Indian armed police personnel intercepted a Santro vehicle and dragged out three men and shot them dead,” said a middle aged man who runs a shop nearby. They were killed by armed forces personnel in front of us,” he said, requesting anonymity.
Another shopkeeper said one of the three youth tried to run into a nearby alley after the troops shot dead one youth. “The troops went after him and brought him back from the lane and killed him on the road,” he said.
Eyewitnesses said that there was no exchange of fire. “The troops had already fired at the car. On the road, one man was already dead.” The youth, requesting anonymity, said “two people were killed on the road. They had no guns, not even a pistol.”
Witnesses said that the three were quickly bundled into a police vehicle and taken away. In videos on social media, the residents are seen cleaning the blood-splattered road stretch.
