Srinagar, March 06, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have condemned in strong terms the brutal killing of civilians in the firing of Indian troops on a private car in Shopian district. Senior APHC leader and Anjuman Shari Shian President, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi in a statement in Srinagar said that the callous authorities while shielding killers were shamefully labelling the innocent civilians as Over Ground Workers of mujahideen. He expressed solidarity with the bereaved families.
Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi said, “The incident once again testifies that every Kashmiri Muslim is an enemy for the Indian forces. Even a naive person can understand that these youth were killed in cold blood and to shield the guilty, stories are being cooked up by forces.”

The High Court Bar Association (HCBA) of occupied Kashmir in its statement termed the civilian killings as barbaric and inhuman.
