In occupied Kashmir, an 11th class student has succumbed to pellet injuries he sustained during anti-India demonstrations in Srinagar city.
The student was injured in the pellet firing by Indian troops on demonstrations in Soura area of Srinagar against the repeal of special status of occupied Kashmir by the Indian government. He succumbed to his injuries in a hospital in Srinagar. Old Srinagar is tense after the death of the student and the occupation authorities have tightened curfew and other restrictions to prevent people from staging demonstrations against the killing.
The occupied Kashmir completed a full month under the siege of brutal Indian forces where unrelenting communications blackout and curfew have brought the normal life to a grinding halt with markets continue to remain shut and public transport is off the roads.
The Kashmir valley and five districts of Jammu region have no contact with the rest of the world due to curfew, suspension of internet, mobile and landline phones and closure of TV channels. India imposed the clampdown after scrapping Jammu and Kashmir’s special status on August 5.
The worst type of humanitarian crisis is looming large on the horizon of the occupied territory as people have been badly hit by unavailability of food, medicines and other commodities. Patients are dying due to travel restrictions and also shortage of medicines in hospitals.
