In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred a Kashmiri youth in Sopore area of Baramulla district. The youth was killed during siege and search operation in Warpora area of Sopore. The operation continued till last reports came in.
At least 500 incidents of protest have broken out in Indian-administered Kashmir since New Delhi stripped the region of its autonomy and imposed a military clampdown more than three weeks ago, a senior government official has told the AFP news agency.
Narendra Modi-led communal government in New Delhi has been keeping the occupied territory under strict lockdown since 5th August when it announced repeal of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that granted special status to occupied Kashmir. Millions of Kashmiris continue to remain under strict siege enforced by hundreds of thousands of Indian troops deployed in every nook and corner of the valley, turning it into big jail for its inhabitants.
Nearly 100 civilians have been injured so far, with a further 300 police and more than 100 paramilitary troopers hurt, the official added. “The number of protests could be much higher and bigger without the blockade in force,” the official told AFP, adding that “anger and public defiance is constantly rising”.
