Srinagar, August 04, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Indian Army has claimed martyring seven more youth in fresh incident of state terrorism in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district. Indian Army’s Srinagar-based Spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia in a media interview said that the youth were killed during an encounter in Keran area of the district. However, the informed sources in Srinagar said, it is a common practice of Indian troops that they arrest Kashmiri youth from different places of the territory, bring them in the areas near the Line of Control and kill them in fake encounters.
Meanwhile, with the recovery to two more dead bodies in the debris of a house after the 40-hour-long cordon and search operation at Pandoshan village in Shopian, the toll mounted to four. One victim has been identified as a non-local labourer.
On the other hand, thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of one martyred youth, Zeenat-ul-Islam Naikoo at his native Memmander village in Shopian district. The participants of the funeral raised high-pitched anti-India and pro-freedom slogans on the occasion.
