Indian army kills three youth in IOK’s Kulgam


SRINAGAR: In a fresh act of state terrorism, Indian army martyred three more youths in Occupied Kashmir, ARY News reported.

According to reports in Kashmiri media, the three young civilians were killed in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district. The troops killed the youth during a “search operation” in Chowgam area of the district.

The occupation authorities have suspended mobile internet service in Kulgam and Islamabad districts of South Kashmir to prevent people from sharing information about the situation. The authorities have also suspended train service in the whole valley.

It is pertinent to note here that earlier in June this year, a United Nations Human Rights Commission report said that Indian security forces used excessive force that led to unlawful killings and a very high number of injuries in Kashmir.

Citing civil society estimates, the report said that up to 145 civilians were killed by the security forces between mid-July 2016 and the end of March 2018.

One of the most dangerous weapons used against protesters in 2016 – and which is still being employed by India security forces – was the pellet-firing shotgun.

According to official figures, 17 people were killed by shotgun pellets between July 2016 and August 2017, and 6,221 people were injured by the metal pellets between 2016 and March 2017. Civil society organizations believe that many of them have been partially or completely blinded.
