Indian Army assaults a family in Tral

Srinagar, September 28, 2021 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a family in Seer Jageer area of Tral in Pulwama district on Tuesday said that they were assaulted by the Indian Army on Monday evening. According to Kashmir Media Service, the family said that their daughter Ishrat Jan was dragged while her clothes were torn before she fell unconscious and was later taken to hospital. Ishrat while talking with the media said that the army personnel dragged her out of the house and tried to take her away in their vehicle.

“I raised a hue and cry after which villagers came out and saved me,” she said. “Army has been raiding our house frequently due to which we are feeling disturbed and insecure,” she said. Ishrat’s mother said that her one son was already languishing in jail for the last three months, while two others are being assaulted by the Indian forces.

The family demanded an end to such atrocities so that such an incident should not happen again. Meanwhile, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President, Mehbooba Mufti, said this is not the first time that civilians from Seer village have been beaten up by the Indian Army.

“Army from Yagwani camp in Tral ransacked homes and ruthlessly thrashed a family last night. The daughter owing to her serious injuries was admitted to hospital. Not the first time that civilians from this village have been beaten up by the army in this area (sic),” Mehbooba tweeted.
