Curfew remains imposed in Bhaderwah for second day

May 17, 2019

Srinagar, May 17, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities continued to impose curfew in Bhaderwah town of Doda district of Jammu region for the second day, today. The curfew was imposed in the town following massive protests against the cold-blooded murder of a Muslim youth by Hindu extremists on Wednesday night. Indian Army has been deployed in the town besides additional forces’ personnel being posted in sensitive areas.

As per reports, a group of three persons was heading towards their native Mohalla Qilla area of Bhaderwah along with their cattle when they were fired upon at 2 am on Wednesday night by cow vigilantes near Nalti village. In the attack, Nayeem Ahmad Shah (50), was killed on spot while two of his associates managed to escape with minor injuries.

The incident triggered widespread protests as people demanded immediate arrest of the culprits. Indian police had used brute force and fired teargas shells to disperse the protesters, triggering clashes, prompting the authorities to impose curfew in the town.

The relatives of the deceased alleged that he was victim of cow vigilantism and was targeted as he was involved in cattle trade. Pervaiz Ahmed Sheikh, President of Anjuman-e-Islamia, Bhaderwah, has given a call for a shutdown and accused the RSS and BJP of being behind the incident.
