The president of the Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, urged India to avoid focusing on the Kashmir conflict and to resolve it through peaceful political means, a local press channel reported on Saturday.
He said the recent UN report on human rights says the world body wants to end the pattern of human rights violations in occupied Kashmir and calls for a political solution to this persistent dispute.
On July 18, in the occupied Kashmir area, demonstrators protested against the killing of 35-year-old woman, Kaneez Begum, and her seven-year-old niece Robia Kousar at Lam Nowshera road in the district by an Indian army vehicle in the Rajouri district. The protesters demanded action against the Indian Army driver responsible for the killing of the woman and her niece.
A police officer said that seven-year-old Robia Kousar died at the scene, but her aunt Kaneeza Begum succumbed to injuries in a hospital. Yasin Din, a four-year-old boy with paralyzed polio and speech impaired, was also seriously injured in the incident.
The boy, Yasin Din, is admitted at a hospital where his condition is stated to be critical, the official said.
