SRINAGAR: As a result of the new state terrorism of Indian troops, three youth were martyred while several innocent Kashmiris were injured, including four journalists in Shopian district on Tuesday, Kashmir Media Service (KMS) reported.
As per details, the Indian army killed the youth during a so-called cordon and search operation in Heff Shirmal area of the district.
Meanwhile, Kashmiri people took to the streets and staged aggressive protests against Indian atrocities, despite harsh weather of the occupied valley.
In response to rightful demonstrations of people, Indian troops and police personnel fired pellets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters, injuring several of them.
At least four photojournalists, Waseem Andrabi, Nisar-ul-Haq, Junaid Gulzar and Mir Burhan, who were performing their professional duties during the demonstrations, also suffered pellet injuries, as reported by KMS.
The Indian administration has suspended internet and mobile phone service in the area.
Few days earlier, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres had expressed hope that Pakistan and India would be able to engage in a meaningful dialogue to resolve their disputes
Responding to a question from a Pakistani journalist at a New York press conference, the UN chief said his organisation had done its job in that regard, referring to the June 14 UN report that calls for the establishment of a ‘commission of inquiry’ to investigate the grave human rights violations in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
Guterres added that he has been offering his good offices in relation to the dialogue between the two countries.
